Internucleosomal DNA fragmentation is a hallmark of apoptosis in mammalian cells. BioVision’s Apoptotic DNA Ladder Extraction Kit provides an easy and sensitive means for detecting DNA fragmentation in apoptotic cells. The new procedure selectively extract DNA ladders without interference of intact genomic DNA, which significantly increase the cell numbers that can be can be extracted and load on one agarose gel well, therefore increase the detection sensitivity.

What is the difference between K120 and K170?
Both K120 and K170 have similar protocols. However, in K170, there is a centrifugation step at the end of the protocol at 16,000 g, which will eliminate the genomic DNA from the samples. Additionally, K170 requires more cells and therefore there will be more genomic DNA whereas in K120, the number of cells is less and therefore, interference from genomic DNA will be less.
