Hi, all

I am planning to purchase Pheonix Apo-Brdu apoptosis assay system
(for flow cytometry) to access apoptosis in my breast cancer cultured cell system.
Actually I tested my apoptotic cells with Annexin-V apoptosis assay
kit, but the result was not good as expected since (in my opionion)
Annexin-V system is basically for the suspension cells.
So anyone out there ever did some apoptosis assay with 
Apo-Brdu assay kit for the adherent cells ? 
Please give me your opinions.

Also, if you know the best apoptosis assay system
for the adherent cells. I would like to avoid
the system with microscopic observations since
I need to include the floating (apoptotic) cells
in my assay.

Thanks in advance,
