Annexin V Apoptosis Detection Kits
Detecting apoptosis in living cells by flow cytometry or fluorescence microscopy
The Annexin V Apoptosis Detection Kits include an Annexin V conjugate or a tagged Annexin V, respectively, as well as binding buffer and partially also propidium iodide (PI) for differentiating between early apoptotic and necrotic cells. The kits allow a one-step staining procedure that takes only 10 minutes. In addition, the assay can be directly performed on living cells.
The Annexin V-Biotin Detection Kit can be used in combination with any streptavidin/avidin-conjugate e.g. steptavidin-HRP or streptavidin coupled to a common fluorescent dye, allowing for colorimetric as well as fluorometric apoptosis detection.
