This is a simple example of a DNA damage assay using single cell gel electrophoresis. Here, the measurement of interest is the length and intensity of the comet tail. Also, illumination correction is used to reduce background flourescence prior to measurement. Also shown is a silver-stained comet example in which the percentage of DNA contained in the tail is calculated.
