Since there is no single parameter that defines programmed cell death, a combination of techniques is recommended for the reliable detection of apoptosis. Our multiparametric apoptosis assay kits are designed to selectively differentiate apoptotic cells from living and necrotic cells in a single cell population. The kits are designed to detect various apoptotic parameters in a single flow cytometry assay, helping to dissect the early and middle stages of the apoptotic response.


Multiparametric apoptosis analysis using the Alexa Fluor® 488 Annexin V/Dead Cell Apoptosis kit with PI. Jurkat cells (T-cell leukemia, human) were treated with 10 μM camptothecin for four hours (bottom panel) or left untreated as a control (top panel). Cells were then treated with the reagents in the kit and analyzed by flow cytometry. Note that the camptothecin-treated cells (bottom panel) have a higher percentage of apoptotic cells (indicated by “A”) than the basal level of apoptosis seen in the control cells (top panel). L = live cells, D = dead cells.
