The ThermoScientific™ Pierce™ Power Stainer is designed for rapid Coomassie dye staining of proteins in up to two mini polyacrylamide gels and subsequent removal of unbound stain from the gel in a single step.

Features of the Pierce Power Stainer include:
• Fast—Coomassie dye staining and destaining of proteins in polyacrylamide gels typically in just 6 to 11 minutes (less than 20 minutes total protocol time)
• Convenient—simultaneous staining and destaining of 1 to 2 mini gels or 1 midi gel
• Integrated power supply—optimized to enable efficient staining equivalent to, or better than, traditional Coomassie dye staining techniques
• Optimized accessories—gel pads included in the Power Staining kits enable uniform staining and minimize blotchy background staining
• Easy to use—intuitive, color LCD touchscreen interface and pre-programmed staining methods; software includes "learn as you run" tutorials
• Cost effective—cost for consumables is comparable to other solution-based staining
• Flexible—works with precast and homemade SDS-PAGE gels
• Upgrade-ready—adding the Pierce Power Blot Cassette activates the pre-loaded software making this unit a fully functional Pierce Power System with blotting and gel staining capabilities

Traditional Coomassie dye staining techniques require a 1-hour to overnight staining step and a separate destaining step(s) for desired results. When using the Pierce Power Staining kits (Mini Gel and Midi Gel), the Pierce Power Stainer provides efficient protein staining and gel destaining in about 6 to 11 minutes enabling results equivalent to, or better than, traditional Coomassie dye staining techniques.

The Pierce Power Station component of the Power Stainer has an easy-to-use color LCD touchscreen interface and pre-programmed gel staining protocols. The easy-touch programming feature allows custom staining settings to be quickly created, saved, and run.
