Comet Assay

The Comet assay, or Single-Cell Gel Electrophoresis Technique, was developed in the late 1980's by Swedish researchers Ostling & Johansson as a fast, effective way of measuring DNA strand breaks in individual cells. The Comet assay is used for a wide range of applications, including DNA damage and repair studies, genetic toxicology testing, biomonitoring and nutritional research.
