Senescence Detection Kit (SA-ß-gal Staining)

For a Fast, Convenient & Easy activity measure of SA-B-Gal in Cells Cultures

Senescence Detection Kit is a Fast, Convenient & Easy-to-use kit that measures activity of SA-B-Gal in cells cultures by hydrolysis of X-gal, which results in the accumulation of a distinctive blue color in senescent cells.

Senescence cells display a phenotype like increase of cell size, distinctive flat morphology, changes in gene expression and activity of senescence-associate ß-galactosidase (SA-ß-gal).

It represents tumor suppressor mechanism for this reason cellular senescence has become an increasingly target in the development of novel therapeutics.

Quality Control
  • Strict quality controls in every phase of manufacturing to guarantee the highest quality and reproducibility.


  • The  fixative  solution  contains  formaldehyde  and  glutaraldehyde,  which  are  toxic  and  corrosive  solutions.  Wear personal  protective  clothing when handling solutions and use in a fume hood.
  • Staining solution supplements (A and B) contains K4[Fe(CN)6] 3H2O  and  K3[Fe(CN)6],  which  are  irritants  for  humans  and  dangerous  for  the  environment. Wear  personal  protective  clothing  (e.g.,  nitrile  or  latex gloves, lab coat and goggles) when handling solution and discard  in an appropriate manner.
  • Dimethylformamide  is  toxic  and  harmful.  Wear  personal  protective  clothing  when  handling  solution.  Use  a  fume hood.  Always use a polypropylene container or glass to make and store the  X‐gal. Do not use polystyrene.
Storage, Shipping & Guarantee
  • Shipped in: Gel Pack.
