Preparation Instructions

Allow all kit components to reach room temperature before use.

Prepare 1× Binding Buffer by diluting 1 ml of the 10× Binding Buffer with 9 ml of deionized water.

Dissolve the staurosporine in DMSO to a concentration of 100 μg/ml.


This procedure describes the induction of apoptosis in the Jurkat cell line, followed by measurement of phosphatidylserine. Perform the experiment using aseptic technique.

1. Induce apoptosis in a 1 x 106 cells/ml suspension of Jurkat cells by the addition of 1 μg/ml  staurosporine.

2. Establish a control of non-induced Jurkat cells at 1 x 106 cells/ml for a zero time data point.

3. Incubate both Jurkat cell cultures for 1–2 hours in a 37 °C, 5% CO2 incubator.

4. Wash the cells twice with DPBS.

5. Resuspend the cells in 1× Binding Buffer at a concentration of ~1 x 106 cells/ml.

6. Add 500 μl of the apoptotic cell suspension to a plastic 12 × 75 mm test tube.

7. Add 500 μl of the non-induced cell suspension to a second plastic 12 × 75 mm test tube.

8. Add 5 μl of Annexin V FITC Conjugate and 10 μl of Propidium Iodide Solution to each cell suspension.

9. Incubate the tubes at room temperature for exactly 10 minutes and protect from light.

10. Determine the fluorescence of the cells immediately with a flow cytometer. Cells, which are early in the apoptotic process, will stain with the Annexin V FITC Conjugate alone. Live cells will show no staining by either the Propidium Iodide Solution or Annexin V FITC Conjugate.  Necrotic cells will be stained by both the Propidium Iodide Solution and Annexin V FITC Conjugate.
