Purpose Detects Apoptosis & Necrosis within 10 min.

Detects early/middle stages of apoptosis, differentiates apoptosis from necrosis
Sample Type Cell Samples
Detection Method Fluorometric
Specificity The assay is based on the observation that soon after initiating apoptosis, most cell types translocate the membrane phospholipid phosphatidylserine (PS) from the inner face of the plasma membrane to the cell surface. Once on the cell surface, PS can easily be detected by staining with a fluorescent conjugate of Annexin V, a protein that has a strong natural affinity for PS.
Characteristics Annexin V-FITC Apoptosis Detection Kit: Simple One Step Assay to Detect Apoptosis within 10 min. Can also differentiate Apoptosis vs Necrosis.
Detection: Flow Cytometry or Fluorescence Microscopy
The one-step staining procedure takes only 10 minutes. Detection can be analyzed by flow cytometry or by fluorescence microscopy. The kit can differentiate apoptosis vs necrosis when performing both Annexin V-FITC and PI staining.
Components Annexin V-FITC
1X Binding Buffer
Propidium Iodide (PI)
Alternative Name Annexin V (ANXA5 ELISA Kit Abstract)
Target Type Chemical
Research Area Cardiovascular, Atherosclerosis, Apoptosis/Necrosis, Coagulation
Application Notes Detection method: Flow cytometry (Ex/Em = 488/530 nm) using FL1 channel and fluorescence microscopy

Category: Apoptosis
SampleType adds: (suspension and adherent)

Assay Time 0.5 h
Protocol A. Incubation of cells with Annexin V-FITC
1. Induce apoptosis by desired method.
2. Collect 1-5 x 10^5 cells by centrifugation.
3. Resuspend cells in 500 µL of 1X Binding Buffer.
4. 4. Add 5 µL of Annexin V-FITC and 5 µL of propidium iodide (PI 50 µg/mL, optional).
5. Incubate at room temperature for 5 min in the dark. Proceed to B or C below depending on method of analysis.

B. Quantification by Flow Cytometry
Analyze Annexin V-FITC binding by flow cytometry (Ex = 488 nm, Em = 530 nm) using FITC signal detector (usually FL1) and PI staining by the phycoerythrin emission signal detector (usually FL2).
For analyzing adherent cells, gently trypsinize and wash cells once with serum-containing media before incubation with Annexin V-FITC (A.3-5).

C. Detection by Fluorescence Microscopy
1. Place the cell suspension from Step A.5 on a glass slide. Cover the cells with a glass coverslip.
For analyzing adherent cells, grow cells directly on a coverslip. Following incubation (A.5), invert coverslip on glass slide and visualize cells. The cells can also be washed and fixed in 2 % formaldehyde before visualization.
Note: Cells must be incubated with Annexin V-FITC before fixation since any cell membrane disruption can cause nonspecific binding of Annexin V to PS on the inner surface of the cell membrane.
2. Observe the cells under a fluorescence microscope using a dual filter set for FITC & rhodamine. Cells that have bound Annexin V-FITC will show green staining in the plasma membrane. Cells that have lost membrane integrity will show red staining (PI) throughout the nucleus and a halo of green staining (FITC) on the cell surface (plasma membrane).
