Apoptotic cells can be detected by terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase (TdT)-mediated dUTP nick end labeling (TUNEL). R&D Systems offers kits designed for several different formats including Light Microscope-, Fluorescence/Flow Cytometry-, and Microplate Reader-based assays. We also offer colorimetric kits optimized for specific tissue types including Cardiac, Skin, Neuronal, Tumor, and Vascular cells and tissues.
Immunohistochemistry kits designed to detect apoptosis in fixed cells, embedded tissue, and frozen tissue using light and electron microscopy.
Fluorescence-based kits to detect apoptosis in suspended cells, monolayer cells, embedded tissue, and frozen tissue.
Kits to detect apoptosis in samples of suspended cells or cell monolayers using a microplate reader.
Kits specifically optimized for detection of apoptotic cells in cardiac, skin, neuronal, cancer, and vascular tissue.
