R&D Systems offers a complete system to run a traditional comet assay. Products include CometAssay Kits, CometSlides, CometAssay Control Cells, and a specialized CometAssay Electrophoresis System.
Kits include CometAssay LMAgarose, CometAssay Lysis Solution, EDTA, and CometSlide in a 2-well, 20-well, or 96-well format.
CometAssay® Electrophoresis System II
Designed to optimize and standardize alkaline and neutral comet assays. Accommodates 2-well, 3-well, 20-well and 96-well slides and maintains correct position during electrophoresis.
CometAssay® Analysis Software
Rapidly evaluate a large number of cells by automatically locating and scoring images in seconds with the ability to analyze both alkaline and neutral comet conditions
Specially treated slides to promote agarose adherence and easy application of cells directly to each well. 2-well, 20-well, and 96-well slides are available to allow for flexibility and scalability based on slide format.
A 3 well slide that promotes adherence of LMAgarose and creates rapid and reliable analysis of large numbers of samples in a standard format.
CometAssay® Starter Kits
Starter kits come in 2-well,20-well, or 96-well format and contain the CometAssay Kit, CometAssay Control Cells, as well as the CometAssay Electrophoresis System II.
CometAssay® Control Cells
Standardize comet assay runs with cryopreserved cells containing different levels of DNA damage. CometAssay Control Cells are offered for both neutral and alkaline comet assay.
CometAssay® Silver Staining Reagents and Kit
Visualize using a standard light microscopy and stain slides permanently for archiving.
