Apoptosis Suite enables examination of three separate biological aspects of cell death in order to assess whether each cell is in the early- mid- or late-stages of apoptosis. The suite includes assays for membrane changes (Annexin V), activation of caspase enzymes, and DNA fragmentation (TUNEL). This combination of assays enables the use of different cellular markers to detect and examine cells at various stages of progression through apoptosis. The assays require only minimal numbers of cells, and include optimized reagent kits, and easy-to-use software, in addition to the instrument used to analyze the cell samples.
