CometAssay™ Control Cells
Trevigen’s CometAssay™ Control Cells are a set of cell preparations containing
different levels of DNA damage to be used with Trevigen’s CometAssay™ Kits. In a
typical comet assay, electrophoresis methods and differences in cell preparations create
a significant source of variation in comet tail parameters. Such variation sometimes
makes it difficult to compare results between laboratories, and even within the same
lab. To overcome this problem, Trevigen scientists developed a set of stable control
cell populations containing incremental levels of DNA damage for use when performing
the CometAssay™. These control cells, when electrophoresed in the CometAssay™,
consistently produce comets with predetermined percents of DNA in the tails. The
healthy control cell population (CC0) was treated with Etoposide under various
conditions to increase the amount of damage in populations CC1, CC2, and CC3,
respectively. These cryopreserved control cells are designed to act as standards to
compare alkaline electrophoresis methods between individual users and laboratories.
