Abstract: A quantitative, non-destructive cellular autofluorescence based in vitro imaging assay has been developed and applied to study the cytotoxicity of Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) and HgCl2 chemical compounds on Balb 3T3 cell culture. A phenomenological double logistic model was proposed to quantify and relate the observed kinetic changes of fluorescence to the toxic potency of chemical compounds. This work forms the basis to use cellular autofluorescence measurements in the in vitro toxicity screening assays. Keywords autofluorescence, NADH, FAD, SLS, HgCl2, fluorescence imaging
