Amyloid-beta peptide Oligomerization Assay

Amyloid-beta peptide Oligomerization Assay is a functional cell-based assay to identify inhibitors of amyloid peptide oligomerization process. We incubate rat primary neurons, human Microglia or SH-SY5Y cells with test compounds in parallel with Aβ1-42 peptide during 24h. After that, we measure Aβ1-42 oligomerization process analysing the number of thiazine staining oligomers related to cell number
