Abbkine presents the products favored by cell research users, comprehensively covering the detection applications of cell proliferation, cytotoxicity, apoptosis, cell aging, oxidative damage and other aspects. The product types include the breakthrough apoptosis and cell proliferation kits with innovative ideas and unique advantages, as well as the detection kits with superior quality and stable performance. Meet your different experimental needs, help your cytology research career.

Cell proliferation assay

Cell proliferation results in many important changes, including DNA synthesis, increased cell metabolism, and proliferation-specific protein expression. Based on the next-generation AbFluor ™ fluorescence staining technology, Abbkine has developed products that accurately detect cell proliferation status directly from the DNA level, while also enabling high-throughput detection of cell proliferation status through the level of cell metabolism. The kit contains a patented proliferation-negative control, which is a perfect solution to the non-standardized proliferation test results. At present, it mainly includes EdU and CCK8 two commonly used detection methods.

1.Cell apoptosis detection

Apoptosis is a process of death in which cells respond to the physiological and pathological stimulation signals of the environment, changes in environmental conditions, or orderly changes in response to palliative damage. Apoptosis involves a series of morphological and molecular changes such as DNA breakage, cell membrane structure, mitochondrial membrane potential and protein expression. Abbkine has developed a series of kits for the multidimensional analysis of apoptosis.
