The evaluation of microorganism survival is currently based on cultivation assays or more recently with PCR methods. Plate counts are time-consuming and biased by the fact that some microorganisms remains viable but non cultivable.
On the other hand, a PCR method is a promising approach, but replication of non-viable DNA gives false positives. Now is possible to stain dead cells prior to fixation and store the sample until the analysis. Welcome to vPCR.

PhAST Blue – for Nucleic acids photo labelingThe PhotoActivation System for Tubes - PhAST - equipment neutralizes the DNA/RNA of dead organisms through the use of photoactivable intercalating reagents.
PhAST for PhotodynamicThe PhotoActivation System for Tubes – PhAST- equipment allows the activation of a photosensitizer (PS) by low doses of harmless visible light of an appropriate wavelength to excite the PS to its reactive triplet state, which will then generate reactive oxygen species that are toxic to cells.
