gamma-H2AX Pharmacodynamic Assay Kit


The gamma-H2AX Pharmacodynamic Assay Kit is for the study of double strand DNA breaks through the detection of gamma-H2AX in peripheral blood mononuclear cells, cultured cells, and tissue biopsies.

Contract Services are also available.

Available Size(s): 96 tests Catalog Number: 4418-096-K Category:



In an ELISA assay, immobilized gamma-H2AX antibody in the wells of a 96-well plate captures gamma-H2AX from sample lysate.  Incubation with a H2AX detecting antibody, followed by addition of a goat anti-mouse HRP conjugate and a chemiluminescent HRP substrate yields relative light units (RLU) that directly correlates with the amount of gamma-H2AX in the sample. The gamma-H2AX polyclonal antibody may be purchased separately.


  • Chemiluminescent, non-radioactive ELISA
  • Pre-coated 96 well capture antibody plate
  • Dynamic range from 10 pM to 800pM
  • Sensitivity with 5 pM of gamma-H2AX

Quantitation of gamma-H2AX levels in peripheral blood mononuclear cells, tissue culture cells, and tissue biopsies.
