Description

FLIPR® Calcium Assay Kits are the platform of choice for measuring changes of intracellular calcium for drug discovery and basic research.

Maximizes fluorescent signal from a wide range of cell types by reducing cell wash artifacts
Reduces well-to-well variability, improving assay quality (Z' factor) and reliability (CV %) of high-throughput screens

FLIPR Calcium Assay Kit
Built as the most comprehensive portfolio of calcium reagents, the kits deliver pre-optimized, homogeneous, fluorescence-based formulations to expedite assay development and screening of GPCR and ion channel targets. FLIPR Calcium Assay Kits provide the most comprehensive method for detecting intracellular calcium changes in a simple and reliable homogeneous assay format. Select from six formulations to complement your target of interest.

FLIPR Assay Kits employ a quenching dye to reduce background fluorescence and improve the signal-to-noise ratio. The patented quench technology is offered to drug discovery and life science researchers exclusively by Molecular Devices, through the purchase of FLIPR Assay Kits.

Key Assay Features and Benefits
