Application Note

Development of a platelet calcium flux assay using Fura-2, AM on the FlexStation 3 reader

  • Real-time kinetic measurement of intracellular Ca2+ changes in platelets provides informationrich data
  • Ability to miniaturize assay from cuvettes to ½ area well plates decreases platelet and compound usage
  • On-board pipettor improves well-to-well reproducibility and assay robustness on FlexStation 3 reader
