Annexin V Apoptosis Detection Kits - Easy-to-Use and Fast

During the early stages of apoptosis, phosphatidylserine residues are translocated from the inner to the outer plasma membrane layer. Binding of labelled Annexin V to the externalized phosphatidylserine residues allows the detection of apoptotic cells by fluorescence microscopy or flow cytometry.

  • Detect early/middle stages of apoptosis
  • Contains propidium iodide for the differentiation of apoptosis from necrosis
  • Non-enzymatic assay avoids fixation
  • For both adherent and suspension cells

XTT Cell Proliferation Assay Kit - Accurate, Sensitive and Fast Detection of Cellular Metabolic Activities

Bases on the reduction of the yellow tetrazolium salt XTT to a highly coloured formazan dye by dehydrogenase enzymes in metabolically active enzymes. For easy spectrophotometric quantification of cell proliferation and viability in response to pharmaceutical, chemical, enviromental compounds and nutrients.

  • Easy to use - no need for additional reagents or cell washing procedures
  • Fast - results within 2 - 5 hours
  • Sensitive - works with low cell concentrations
  • Accurate - formazan produced is proportional to viable cells/well
  • Ideal for high throughput screening

Resazurin Cell Viability Assay - Reliable, Sensitive One-Step Measurement of Cellular Metabolic Activity

The blue dye Resazurin is reduced to the pink coloured, highly red fluorescent resorufin by dehydrogenases in metabolically active cells. Cell viability can be measured by monitoring of the fluorescent signal or by absorbance measurement of the colorimetric signal.

  • Easy and fast - one-step procedure without dilution or washing steps
  • Reliable and sensitive - fluorescent or colorimetric signal is proportional to number of livings cells in the sample

Sulforhodamine B Cytotoxicity Assay - Ideal for High-Throughput Drug Screening

Bases on the binding of the bright-pink Sulforhodamine B dye (SRB) to protein components of cells fixed to tissue culture plates. The fixed dye is solubilized and measured photometrically at OD 450 nm. The OD values correlate with total protein content and therefore with cell number.

  • Faster and better linearity than formazan-based assays
  • Stable end-point, thus no need for time-sensitive measurement as with XTT or MTT assays
  • Amount of solubilised SRB dye is directly proportional to cell mass
  • Good signal-to-noise ratio 

The BioDrop Family for Micro-Volume Measurement

Whatever your application — you can rely on the BioDrop range of instruments for rapid, simple and accurate measurement of your DNA, RNA, oligos and protein concentration and purity. BioDrop's fresh new approach has resulted in a range that is flexible when you require it, fast when you need it, and easy-to-use in every case.
The built-in sample port uses no moving parts. This meams that the instrument provides excellent reproducibility without the need to recondition or calibrate. Measurements are also highly accurate because the pathlength of the port is highly specified to +/- 5 µm.

Accuracy, robustness and ease of use are the hallmarks of BioDrop products.


BioDrop DUO

BioDrop µLITE – The choice for life scientists for whom speed and accuracy in micro-volume measurement are required, rather than a broad measurement range
BioDrop DUO – The ideal solution for those where flexibility of measurement is the key
BioDrop TOUCH – A UV/VIS spectrophotometer ideal for use with BioDrop CUVETTEs
BioDrop CUVETTE – The revolutionary micro-volume device is an accurate and robust tool for measurement of DNA, RNA, oligos and protein. For the use with BioDrop DUO and BioDrop TOUCH as well as for all UV/VIS spectrophotometers with beam heights of 8.5 mm and 15 mm.
BioDrop Resolution Life Science PC Software – A powerful analysis software that is included with all instruments
