MitoPT™ TMRM Assay Kit – 500 tests

Product ID: M1699

Unit SizePriceQuantity 

Availability: In stock


Detects mitochondrial membrane depolarization using the fluorescent dye TMRM which accumulates within negatively charged mitochondrial organelles, exhibiting a red-orange fluorescence (em. 573 nm) that increases dramatically when excited at 548 nm.

The MitoPT™ TMRM assay can be used in conjunction with existing apoptosis or metabolic stress protocols. Each kit includes the TMRM potentiometric dye reagent, a 10X wash buffer for removing any excess TMRM dye after staining, and the generic mitochondrial membrane depolarizer, Carbonylcyanide m- chlorophenylhydrazone (CCCP). TMRM-stained cells can be analyzed using flow cytometry, fluorescence microscopy, and fluorescence plate reader evaluation methodology.
