Application Note: Real-Time Assessment of Apoptosis and Necrosis
2 November 2017

Although cell death is an important, normal consequence of multicellular homeostasis it also has an unfortunate role in many human diseases. Discovery of targeted cytotoxic and cytoprotective agents may therefore have important implications in treating cancer, neurodegeneration and a litany of other diseases. This application note describes the monitoring of apoptosis and necrosis in real time. Promega’s new RealTime-GloTM Annexin V Apoptosis and Necrosis Assay provides the simplicity of an add-mix-measure assay, in a livecell, real-time format.
