Product Note
Select online data sheet information is drawn from bioinformatics databases, occasionally resulting in ambiguous or non-relevant product information. It is the responsibility of the customer to review, verify, and evaluate the information to make sure it matches their requirements before purchasing the kit. Our ELISA Kit assays are dynamic research tools and sometimes they may be updated and improved. If the format of this assay is important to you then please request the current manual or contact our technical support team with a presales inquiry before placing an order. We will confirm the current details of the assay. We cannot guarantee the sample manual posted online is the most current manual.
Other Notes
Small volumes of CASP8 kit vial(s) may occasionally become entrapped in the seal of the product vial during shipment and storage. If necessary, briefly centrifuge the vial on a tabletop centrifuge to dislodge any liquid in the container`s cap. Certain products may require to ship with dry ice and additional dry ice fee may apply.

CASP8 kit
Description: The FAM FLICA Caspase 8 kit uses a quick and easy method to analyze active caspases in apoptotic cells.
Test Principle: Caspase FLICA kits measure apoptosis by detecting active caspases in whole, living cells. These kits do not work by using antibodies or as an ELISA. Instead, their methodology is based on a unique cell-permeable and non-cytotoxic reagent called the Fluorochrome Inhibitor of Caspases (FLICA). The FLICA reagent contains a caspase inhibitor sequence linked to a green (Carboxyfluorescein, FAM) fluorescent probe.

The Caspase FLICA Kits are suitable for cells in suspension, adherent cells, thin tissue sections (but not fixed or paraffin-embedded cells) from many species including mammalian, insect and yeast. Different cell types, e.g. HeLa, primary neurons, macrophages and lymphocytes have also been successfully studied with these kits. This kit can be used with a flow cytometer, fluorescence microscope or a fluorescence plate reader using black microtitre plates.
Applications Tested/Suitable for CASP8 kit
Flow cytometry (FC/FACS), Immunofluorescence (IF)

Testing Data #1 of CASP8 kit
Both cells are apoptotic (green) and dying (blue nuclei). As the left cell is much brighter green than the right cell, the left cell had more active caspases
