Guava Mitochondrial Depolarization Assay for detection of early apoptosisGuava Technologies has optimized an assay format for 96-well plates that combines the sensitivity of a single-cell based method with the throughput and ease-of-use of a microplate reader. The Guava® Mitochondrial Depolarization Assay for the Guava EasyCyte™ Plus System allows you to monitor the loss of mitochondrial membrane potential through the use of the fluorescent cationic dye, JC-1. An optional dead cell dye, 7-AAD, is also included for discerning apoptotic cells from dead cells. Distinguishes healthy, early apoptotic, and dead cellsIn healthy, non-apoptotic cells, the JC-1 dye enters the mitochondrial matrix, accumulates as aggregates and stains the mitochondria bright red. In apoptotic cells, the mitochondria...Read more

Description

Guava Mitochondrial Depolarization Assay
for detection of early apoptosis
Guava Technologies has optimized an assay format for 96-well plates that combines the sensitivity of a single-cell based method with the throughput and ease-of-use of a microplate reader. The Guava® Mitochondrial Depolarization Assay for the Guava EasyCyte™ Plus System allows you to monitor the loss of mitochondrial membrane potential through the use of the fluorescent cationic dye, JC-1. An optional dead cell dye, 7-AAD, is also included for discerning apoptotic cells from dead cells.
Distinguishes healthy, early apoptotic, and dead cells
In healthy, non-apoptotic cells, the JC-1 dye enters the mitochondrial matrix, accumulates as aggregates and stains the mitochondria bright red. In apoptotic cells, the mitochondrial membrane potential collapses, and the JC-1 enters the cytoplasm as a monomeric form where it fluoresces green. Results are automatically calculated and presented in a statistical format that is easy to interpret, with total cell counts and percentages for those cell populations that are either healthy, apoptotic, or dead.
