The FAM FLICA Poly Caspase Kit uses a quick and easy method to analyze active caspases in apoptotic cells. This FLICA reagent binds the following activated caspases: caspase 1, caspase 3, caspase 4, caspase 5, caspase 6, caspase 7, caspase 8 and caspase 9. It can also be used as a generic probe for the detection of most caspases.

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 and adherent 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.
