  • Product overview

    ab125306 is a histochemical staining kit for the detection and localization of bromodeoxyuridine incorporated into newly synthesized DNA of actively proliferating cells.

    The material in ab125306 is sufficient to run 50 slides. The average test area is defined as a circle around the tissue with an approximate diameter of 2 centimeters.

    Control Slides: Mouse intestinal tissue pulsed with BrdU ab129956 


  • Notes

    *Trypsin is only required if using formalin fixed tissues. If the tissues are fixed in alcohol, trypsin digestion is not required. Please note that a quenching solution (hydrogen peroxide (30% solution)) is not provided in this kit.

Customer reviews and Q&As

clean-grade SD rat was fasted from 12 h prior to the establishment of the pancreatitis model until 24 h after the model was established, but drinking water was made continuously available. The rat resumed regular intake of food and water thereafter. On day 7 after pancreatitis was induced, the rat was sacrificed by cervical dislocation. At 6 h before the rat was sacrificed and tissue samples were collected, BrdU was administered via IP injection at 100 mg/kg body weight.

After 7 days of the establishment of pancreatitis, BrdU-positive cells formed cell sheets.
