How does the autophagy marker in your Cell Meter™ Autophagy Assay Kit (Cat#23000) work?

Posted June 13, 2019

What makes this kit different from your Cell Meter Autophagy Fluorescence Imaging Kit (Cat#23001)?


The autophagy marker preferentially accumulates in autophagic vacuoles due to a combination of ion trapping and specific interactions with membrane lipids.

The Autophagy Super Blue maker available in Cat#23001 is an enhanced autophagy probe that generates a stronger more intense fluorescence signal and higher signal-to-background ratio. It’s improved sensitivity for staining autophagosomes versus cell lysosomes greatly reduces background interference.
