Product Description

Activation of caspases plays a central role in apoptosis. The CaspILLUME? Fluorescein Active Caspase-3 Staining Kit provides a convenient means for sensitive detection of activated caspase-3 in living cells. The assay utilizes the caspase-3 inhibitor, DEVD-FMK, conjugated to FITC (FITC-DEVD-FMK) as a marker. FITC-DEVD-FMK is cell permeable, nontoxic, and irreversibly binds to activated caspase-3 in apoptotic cells.

‧ Detection method- Fluorescence microscopy, Flow cytometry and plate reader (Ex. = 485 nm and Em. = 535 nm)
‧ Sample type- Live cells
‧ Species reactivity- Mammalian
‧ Applications- Sensitive detection of activated caspase-3 in living cells.

Features and Benefits
‧ Simple one-step procedure; takes only 1-2 hours
‧ Fast and convenient
‧ The FITC label allows for direct detection of the activated caspases in apoptotic cells by fluorescence microscopy, flow cytometry, or fluorescence plate reader.

Detection of Caspase­3 Activation Using CaspILLUME Fluorescein Caspase­3 Staining Kit. Apoptosis was induced in Jurkat cells with (B) or without (A) camptothecin for 6 hours. Cells were collected and incubated with CaspILLUME in situ marker, FITC­DEVD­FMK, for 20 minutes according to kit instructions. Cells were then analyzed by flow cytometry in the FL1 channel.
