Dead Cell Apoptosis Kit with Annexin V FITC and PI, for flow cytometry

Back to top


This product detects the externalization of phosphatidylserine in apoptotic cells using recombinant annexin V conjugated to green-fluorescent FITC dye and dead cells using propidium iodide (PI). Propidium iodide stains necrotic cells with red fluorescence. After treatment with both probes, apoptotic cells show green fluorescence, dead cells show red and green fluorescence, and live cells show little or no fluorescence.
