CytoTrack cell proliferation assays are designed to efficiently stain live cells for excellent resolution of each cell division generation.
Antibodies, Kits and Dyes to determine your Cell Proliferation
We offer a broad range of antibodies, kits and dyes to monitor proliferation. Proliferation can be measured through dye incorporation into live cells, by measurement of protein levels of key proliferation markers or through incorporation of Bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU), a thymidine analogue.
While some assays utilize antibodies to study cell health, proliferation, cell cycle or apoptosis, other types of experiments can rely on non-antibody based methods of assessment, often called non-antibody chemical probes. These are reagents that localize to an organelle or indicate health based on chemical characteristics like hydrophobicity, charge, size and enzymatic activation.
The thymidine analog 5′-bromo-2′-deoxyuridine (BrdU) is a popular reagent in various scientific disciplines ranging from cancer to neuroscience research. The chemical is frequently added to samples, such as mammalian cell lines, and subsequently incorporated into newly synthesized DNA during replication.
