The Thermo Scientific™ Pierce™ Power Staining kits are designed for fast Coomassie dye staining of protein gels and optimized to work exclusively with the Pierce Power Stain Cassette and Pierce Power Station. The Pierce™ Mini Gel Power Staining Kit enables rapid Coomassie dye staining of proteins mini-size polyacrylamide gels and the removal of unbound stain from the gel matrix. Two mini gels having the same formulation can be accommodated and stained simultaneous in the same power stain cassette.

• High performance—performance is equivalent to, or better than, traditional Coomassie dye staining techniques
• Fast—optimized ionic solutions enable Coomassie dye staining of protein and gel destaining within 6 to 11 minutes when used with the Pierce Power Stainer
• Compatible—verified to work with commonly used precast and homemade SDS-PAGE gels

Traditional Coomassie dye staining techniques require staining for one hour to overnight and prolonged destaining for desired results. When used in conjunction with Thermo Scientific Pierce Power Stain Solution, Destain Solution, and Gel Pads, the Pierce Power Stainer enables efficient staining and destaining in 6 to 11 minutes with results equivalent to, or better than, traditional Coomassie dye staining techniques.
