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

  • Universal mix-and-read protocol accelerates assay workflow and increases throughput
  • Superior signal-to-noise ratio facilitates confirmation of endogenous or transiently transfected receptor activity during assay development
  • Pre-optimized and validated protocols for the FLIPR® Tetra and FlexStation® Systems ensure you can navigate both routine and unconventional cell lines and targets

Technology of FLIPR Calcium Assay Kits

  • FLIPR Calcium Assay Kits Provide a Homogeneous Solution for Assessing GPCRs and Ion Channels

    FLIPR Calcium Assay Kits utilize a calcium sensitive dye that is absorbed into the cell's cytoplasm during incubation. Upon ligand-receptor binding, intracellular calcium is released, binding with the dye, thereby increasing fluorescence intensity. All FLIPR Calcium Assay Kits utilize an extracellular masking technology to block background fluorescence and increase your assay's signal window. The FLIPR Calcium 6-QF Assay Kit is the one exception, enabling assay performance without a masking technology, making it an ideal choice for quench-sensitive applications such as multiplexing with luminescent indicators.
