Application Note: Detection of Apoptosis Using the BD Annexin V FITC Assay on the BD FACSVerse™ System
14 October 2011

This application note describes proof-of-principle experiments for the detection of camptothecin-induced apoptosis in Jurkat cells and stimulated peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) using the Annexin V FITC apoptosis detection kit on the BD FACSVerse system. The BD Pharmingen™ Annexin V FITC apoptosis detection kit provides a set of reagents for the detection of apoptosis using flow cytometry. The BD FACSVerse™ system includes the cytometer, BD FACSuite™ software for acquisition and analysis, and BD FACSuite research assays for use with specific reagent kits.
