MitoPT™ TMRE Assay Kit – 500 tests

Product ID: M1698

Unit SizePriceQuantity 

Availability: In stock


Detects mitochondrial membrane depolarization using the potentiometric fluorescent dye tetramethylrhodamine ethyl ester(TMRE) which emits a red fluorescence (em. 574 nm) in negatively charged, polarized mitochondria.

The MitoPT™ TMRE assay can be used in conjunction with existing apoptosis or metabolic stress protocols. Each kit includes the MitoPT™- TMRE potentiometric reagent, a wash buffer, and the mitochondrial membrane depolarizer Carbonylcyanide m- chlorophenylhydrazone (CCCP). TMRE-stained cells can be analyzed using flow cytometry, fluorescence microscopy, and fluorescence plate reader evaluation methodology.
