      DescriptionApo-BrdU™ Detection Kit
      OverviewThe CHEMICON APO-BRDU™ Kit is a two color staining method for labeling DNA breaks and total cellular DNA to detect apoptotic cells by flow cytometry (Li et al. 1995). The kit contains the instructions and reagents required for measuring apoptosis in cells including; positive and negative control cells for assessing reagent performance; washing, reaction, and rinsing buffers for processing individual steps in the assay; terminal deoxynucleotidyl tranferase enzyme (TdT), bromodeoxyuridine triphosphate (Br-dUTP), and fluorescein labeled anti-BrdU antibody for labeling DNA breaks and Propidium Iodide/RNase A solution for counter staining the total DNA.

      Product Information
      • The APO-BRDU™ Kit is shipped in one container and consists of two packages. One package is shipped at ambient temperature and should be stored at 2-8°C upon arrival. The other package is styrofoam containing frozen ice packs and the reagent contents should be stored at -20°C upon arrival. Note: Upon arrival store the reagents at the appropriate temperatures.
      • Reagent bottles have color coded caps to aid in their identification. Sufficient reagents are provided to process 60 cell suspensions including 5 mL positive and 5 mL negative control cell suspensions of approximately 1 x 106 cells per mL in 70% (v/v) ethanol. The control cells are derived from a human lymphoma cell line and have been fixed as described on page 6.

      Storage ConditionsPrecautions and Warnings

      1. The components of this kit are for Research Use only and are not intended for diagnostic procedures.

      2. Positive and negative control cells contain 70% (v/v) ethanol as a preservative; wash and reaction buffer contain sodium cacodylate (dimethylarsinic) as a buffer; rinsing and PI/RNase staining buffer contain 0.05% (w/v) sodium azide as a preservative. These materials are harmful if swallowed; avoid skin contact, wash immediately with water. See Material Safety Data Sheets.

      3. TdT Enzyme will not freeze at -20oC, because it is in 50% (v/v) glycerol solution. Upon warming the TdT enzyme solution, centrifuge the tube for 30 seconds to force all the liquid to the bottom of the tube.
