Cell death cascades are complex and dynamic, underscoring the importance of a multi-parametric approach to apoptosis detection.

  • Plasma membrane assays
  • Mitochondrial assays
  • Caspase assays
  • Nuclear apoptosis assays

Cell cycle assays for flow cytometry

We offer a series of fluorescent dyes to allow accurate cell cycle analysis in either live or fixed cell populations.

  • Live cell cycle assays
  • Fixed cell cycle assays

Cell proliferation assays for flow cytometry

Cell proliferation assays are a series of fluorescence-based tests that can monitor cell health and cell division.

  • DNA synthesis measurement assays
  • Dye dilution assays for cell proliferation

Cell viability assays for flow cytometry
