Tissue Type-Specific Colorimetric Kits

Kits specifically optimized for detection of apoptotic cells in Cardiac, Skin, Neuronal, Cancer, and Vascular tissue.

Visualization of an Apoptotic Rat Cardiac Myocyte using the CardioTACS In situ Detection Kit
Rat heart tissue was fixed in 4% formaldehyde overnight and paraffin-embedded. Five micron sections were prepared and placed onto glass microscope slides. Samples were processed following the CardioTACS Kit protocol (Catalog # 4827-30-K) and visualized by light microscopy. Photo was provided courtesy of Dr. J. Zhang, FDA.

NeuroTACS® in situ

Apoptotic Cells within a Mouse Mammary Tumor Identified using the Tumor TACS Kit
Mammary tumor was fixed in 4% paraformaldehyde overnight and paraffin-embedded. Five micron sections were prepared and placed onto glass microscope slides. The sample was processed following the TumorTACS Kit protocol (Catalog # 4815-30-K). Brown stained nuclei indicated apoptotic cells.

Complete kits contain Streptavidin-HRP, DAB, Blue Counterstain, and reagents necessary for generating positive controls. Kits are optimized for detection of apoptosis in neuronal samples.

Label: Biotin/Streptavidin-HRP/DAB
Testing Format: Light Microscopy
Sample Type: Fixed cells, Embedded tissues, Frozen tissues
Size: 30 Tests (Catalog # 4823-30-K)

TumorTACS® in situ

Complete kits contain Streptavidin-HRP, DAB, Methyl Green counterstain, and reagents necessary for generating positive controls. Kits are optimized for detection of apoptosis in tumor samples.

Label: Biotin/Streptavidin-HRP/DAB
Testing Format: Light Microscopy
Sample Type: Fixed cells, Embedded tissues, Frozen tissues
Size: 30 Tests (Catalog # 4815-30-K)
Visualization of Apoptotic Cells in Vascular Tissue
TIssue from the small artery of rat was formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded following the initiation of drug-induced apoptosis. The tissue was processed according to the protocol in the VasoTACS Kit (Catalog # 4826-30-K) and visualized by light microscopy. Brown stained nuclei following counterstaining with Red Counterstain C indicated apoptotic cells. Data was provided courtesy of Dr. Jun Zhang, FDA.

VasoTACS® in situ
