Kit Summary

A membrane-based antibody array for the parallel determination of the relative levels of human apoptosis-related proteins. Validated for analyte detection in cell lysates.

Key Benefits

  • Detects 35 human apoptosis-related proteins simultaneously
  • Requires no specialized equipment


Principle of the Assay

The Proteome Profiler Human Apoptosis Array Kit is a membrane-based sandwich immunoassay. Capture antibodies spotted in duplicate on nitrocellulose membranes bind to specific target proteins present in the sample (Step 1). Captured proteins are detected with biotinylated detection antibodies (Step 2) and then visualized using chemiluminescent detection reagents (Step 3). The signal produced is proportional to the amount of the bound analyte.

Why Use an Antibody Array to Detect Apoptosis-Related Proteins?

Determining the expression of multiple proteins in a single sample can be expensive, time consuming and can require specialized equipment. Performing multiple immunoprecipitations and Western blots requires time, labor, and reagents. The use of a multiplex antibody array to detect multiple proteins in a single sample can be cost-effective and also save time and sample.
