  • Product overview

    Abcam's Caspase 2 (active) FITC Staining Kit provides a convenient means for sensitive detection of activated caspase 2 in living cells. The assay utilizes the caspase 2 inhibitor, VDVAD-FMK, conjugated to FITC (FITC-VDVAD-FMK) as a marker. FITC-VDVAD-FMK is cell permeable, non-toxic, and irreversibly binds to activated caspase 2 in apoptotic cells. The FITC label allows detection of activated caspase 2 in apoptotic cells directly by fluorescence microscopy, flow cytometry, or fluorescence plate reader.
