The degree o apoptosis in a cell population is an importantparameter that contributes to a comprehensive pictureo cell health. Accurate detection and measurement o cellular apoptosis is essential or drug development anddiscovery, or understanding mode o compound action,and or understanding the impact o culture and growthconditions. However, the assessment o cellular apoptosishas been limited due to the requirements or expensiveand complicated instrument platorms, expertise andimproved analytical methods that provide rapid, robust andreproducible apoptosis data. Access to these improvementscan acilitate apoptosis monitoring, thereby enabling theecient, daily execution o cellular research.The Muse™ Cell Analyzer is a novel instrument that enablesmultidimensional cell health analysis on a single platorm.This small, benchtop cell analyzer eortlessly guides usersthrough the acquisition and analysis o samples usinga highly simplied and intuitive touchscreen interacewhich delivers rapid measurements o cell concentration,viability, apoptotic status, and cell cycle distribution
. Usingmultiparametric fuorescent detection o individual cellsvia microcapillary fow technology, the system enableshighly sensitive and rapid detection o cellular samplesusing minimal cell numbers. The simplied ormat enablesresearchers o varying backgrounds and experience levelsto obtain a comprehensive picture o cellular health.In this study, we used the Muse™ Cell Analyzer orapoptosis studies using the Muse™ Annexin V & DeadCell Assay, a rapid, no-wash assay or the identicationo apoptotic cells. Jurkat and HeLa cells were treated witha range o cytotoxic and anti-tumor compounds, and theresults rom percentage o live, early, late apoptotic, anddead cells were evaluated. Our results demonstrate thatthe assay provides rapid and sensitive detection o cellularapoptosis and provides quantitative and precise results ona variety o cellular types and compound treatments.

Apoptosis, or programmed cell death, is an importantregulator o cell growth and prolieration and ischaracterized by distinct morphological changes. Onekey early aspect o apoptosis is the translocation o phosphotidylserine rom the inner to the outer leafet o the plasma membrane and exposure to outer surace o thecell. This universal phenomenon is independent o species,cell type and induction system and occurs early in theapoptotic process.The Muse™ Annexin V & Dead Cell Assay is based on thedetection o phosphatidylserine (PS) on the surace o apoptotic cells and uses a premixed reagent containingfuorescently labeled Annexin V in combination with adead cell marker, 7-AAD. Annexin V is a Ca
-dependentphospholipid-binding protein that has a high anity orPS, a membrane component normally localized to theinternal ace o the cell membrane. Early in the apoptoticpathway, molecules o PS are translocated to the outersurace o the cell membrane where Annexin V can readilybind to them (Figure 1). Late-stage apoptotic cells showloss o membrane integrity. The membrane-impermeantdye, 7-AAD, is used to distinguish dead cells rom earlyapoptotic cells. The assay can thus distinguish ourpopulations:
 Viable cells, not undergoing detectable apoptosis:Annexin V (–) and dead cell marker (–)
Early apoptotic and dead cells: Annexin V (+) and deadcell marker (–)
Late apoptotic or dead cells: Annexin V (+) and dead cellmarker (+)
Cells that have died through non-apoptotic pathway:Annexin V (–) and dead cell marker (+)
