Description

The Vybrant Apoptosis Assay Kit #5 provides a rapid and convenient assay for apoptosis based on fluorescence detection of the compacted state of the chromatin in apoptotic cells. This kit contains ready-to-use solutions of blue-fluorescent Hoechst 33342 dye, which stains the condensed chromatin of apoptotic cells more brightly than the chromatin of nonapoptotic cells, and red-fluorescent propidium iodide dye, which stains dead cells.
For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
