Accurate measurement of cell division and proliferation is a fundamental part of experimental biology and is crucial in the assessment of cell health.
One of the most common methods for detecting and measuring cell division is 5-bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU), a thymidine analog that is specifically incorporated into DNA during S phase of the cell cycle.
While BrdU labeling of cells or tissue is common practice, there are several challenges associated with this type of experiment.
This webinar provides a guide to best practices for performing BrdU labeling experiments and subsequent detection in immunoassays, helping you to avoid BrdU blues.
You can expect to learn:
- Methods used to detect cell division and proliferation
- How to perform BrdU labeling and prepare cells for the detection of BrdU using immunoassays
- How to achieve immunodetection of BrdU via flow cytometry, immunohistochemistry, and immunocytochemistry
- How to set up a BrdU labeling experiment and subsequent detection by immunocytochemistry
- By attending you will gain ten top tips for successful BrdU labeling and immunodetection.
