The present study was performed in order to compare the sensitivity of 3 apoptosis-detection methods using a model cell culture after induction of apoptosis. Evaluation was performed by means of flow cytometry and light microscopy. It appeared that both TUNEL and annexin V methods are sensitive and specific and produced similar data in all measurements. The immunocytochemical detection of lamin B was less reliable than the other methods.

Keywords: TUNEL; annexin V; apoptosis; flow cytometry; lamin B
