Caspase activity assays either use peptide substrates, which are cleaved by caspases in cell extracts, or similar substrates that bind to activated caspases in live cells. Caspase specificity varies by substrate: learn more about caspase substrates.
Caspase activity assays: cell lysates
Assays for colorimetric and fluorimetric analysis using a plate reader.
Caspase activity assays: live cells
Assays for analysis using a flow cytometer, microscope or plate reader.
Reagents and assay kits
In addition to caspase activity assays, we also offer assays designed for the screening of caspase inhibitors.
