Product Details

NeuroTACS In Situ Apoptosis Detection Kit Summary

Provides rapid and convenient identification of apoptosis in brain tissue or neuronal cells using a TUNEL based assay.

Key Benefits

• Unique buffer system produces more consistent labeling.
• Performance tested on brain sections.
• Includes exclusive NeuroPore permeabilization reagent.
• Includes TACS-Nuclease solution for preparing sample-dependent positive controls.
• Helps resolve unique problems encountered when detecting apoptotic neuronal cells.

Why Use the NeuroTACS In Situ Apoptosis Detection Kit?

The kit has been developed to overcome the common difficulties unique to neuronal samples including the fragile nature of brain tissue sections, high background problems, poor counterstaining with common dyes, and the need to perform dual labeling experiments to detect cell specific antigens in conjunction with apoptotic cells. A key feature is NeuroPore, a proprietary permeabilization reagent that gently permeabilizes samples while retaining cell morphology. NeuroPore also contains blocking reagents to allow its use as an antibody diluent in immunohistochemistry and to reduce background staining.
