How the Click-iT Plus EdU Proliferation Assay works

Measuring DNA synthesis is the most precise way to detect changes in cell proliferation. Image-based proliferation assays generate spatial and temporal results that cannot be detected with other methods. This video describes and compares two of the most referenced image-based proliferation technologies.

Stauroporine was then added to a final concentration of 1 µM and images were acquired every 30 min. for 18 hours using EVOS Auto Imaging System. All cells are stained with NucBlue Live, shown with blue nuclei. Over time an increase in the number of dead cells is observed as indicated by the appearance of green nuclei (NucGreen Dead).

Video LIVE DEAD Cell Imaging kit on the EVOS Auto Imaging System 
Time course of cell death visualized using the LIVE/DEAD Cell Imaging kit (R37601). The LIVE/DEAD Cell Imaging kit is based on a cell-permeable dye (calcein, AM) that stains live, viable cells bright green and a cell-impermeable red marker that only stains dead and dying cells, which are characterized by compromised cell membranes. Labeled U-2 OS cells were treated 1 μM staurosporine and fluorescence images in the FITC and TexasRed channels were acquired every 5 minutes over 14 h on the EVOS Auto Imaging System using a 20x objective.

Video Click-iT Plus EdU Proliferation Assay 
Measuring DNA synthesis is the most precise way to detect changes in cell proliferation. Image-based proliferation assays generate spatial and temporal results that can not be detected with other methods. This video describes and compares two of the most referenced image-based proliferation technologies.

Webinar Basics of multicolorflow cytometry panel design 
With the proliferation of new fluorescent dyes, as well as instruments that can detect 18 or more parameters multicolor flow cytometry has become more popular and more accessible than ever. This webinar presented by Dr. Holden T. Maecker at Stanford University will discuss the caveats of good panel design, including: Rules for designing panels Examples and practical application of these rules Controls and standardization Relevance of panel design to new mass cytometry platforms

Webinar An introduction to flow cytometric analysis, Part 2: Cell viability and apoptosis analysis 
In this free webinar, we will discuss flow cytometric analysis of apoptosis and identification of dead cells. Changes introduced by apoptosis can be tested with numerous assays measuring Membrane structure, Mitochondrial function, Metabolism, Caspase activity, Membrane integrity, and DNA fragmentation. We will also discuss dead cell identification using traditional impermeant nucleic acid dyes.

Webinar Flow cytometry in microbiological research 
In recent years the application of flow cytometry in microbiological research has expanded from detection and quantification of organisms to more complex studies including analysis of host-microbe interactions and detailed spatial and temporal analysis of microbial metabolism in different environments. During this webinar we will discuss how the multi-parametric nature of flow cytometry can be applied to microbiology and the advantages of using this application over traditional microbiological methods.
