The Novex® Sharp Pre-Stained Protein Standard is designed for accurate, easy, and convenient molecular weight estimation of a wide range of molecular weight proteins during SDS-PAGE and Western blotting. Features of this standard:

• Accurate—sharp bands for the accurate estimation of molecular weight
• Unambiguous—each band in the standard is pre-stained with a unique color for easy interpretation of results
• Comprehensive—a wide range of molecular weight bands consisting of 12 proteins in the range of 3.5–260 kDa
• Convenient—a ready-to-use formulation eliminates the need to heat, reduce, or add sample buffer prior to use
• Adaptable—suitable for most gel types, recommended for use with Novex® NuPAGE®, Tris-Glycine, and Tricine gels.

Choose between unstained and pre-stained formats
The Novex® Sharp Protein Standard is also offered in an unstained format.
For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
