Guava Cell Cycle Assay, Guava Technologies
Guava Technologies' new Cell Cycle Assay enables fast and easy examination of cell division phases for immunology, cancer drug discovery and cell health profiling. The assay includes pre-combined staining reagents in a single optimized format with detailed protocols for individual tube and 96-well microtiter plate formats. The Guava Cell Cycle assay's automated analysis is a convenient method for screening and optimizing lead drug candidates for their ability to induce cell cycle arrest and to kill proliferating cells.
Together with Guava's Personal Cell Analysis System (PCA) and CellHealth Profiling Assays, the new Cell Cycle Assay provides faster, easier cell analysis. The Guava Cell Cycle Assay uses the nuclear DNA stain propidium iodide (PI) to directly discriminate cells at different stages of the cell cycle. Three histogram markers distinguish the G0/G1, S and G2/M cell cycle phases, while an optional fourth marker offers a way to identify apoptotic cells, cell aggregates or an internal standard.
