GelCode Blue Stain Reagent is a ready-to-use protein stain based on colloidal coomassie dye G-250 that provides nanogram-level detection in polyacrylamide gels and for in-blot detection.

• No methanol-acetic acid destaining required
Fast, one-step, one-hour staining—ready-to-use stain reagent; band development is visible directly in the staining tray; no background from overnight staining; flexible fixing and washing protocol; no gel shrinkage; stained gel can be dried
Water wash increases staining sensitivity—optional step provides crystal-clear gel background and makes weakly stained bands more visible

Compare all Coomassie stains ›

This unique GelCode Blue Stain Reagent stains only protein and allows bands to be viewed directly in the gel during the one hour gel staining process. Because the destaining step does not fix the protein, GelCode Blue Stain is compatible with mass spectrometry analysis and N-terminal sequence analysis.
