The Colloidal Blue Staining Kit allows detection of nanogram levels of protein with minimal effort and requires only water to destain. With the Colloidal Blue Staining Kit, you get:
  • Five times more sensitivity than Coomassie® R-250—detect as little as 10 ng of BSA
  • Easy-to-use, mass spectrometry–compatible reagents
  • Great densitometry resultsThe Colloidal Blue stain uses colloidal chemistry that reduces free dye in solution and improves the protein-to-dye binding ratio. Samples are intensely stained and visible within 3 hours. Background staining is virtually eliminated by destaining overnight with water. The kit requires one easy solution preparation. Methanol is required in the staining step, but is not included in the kit.
  • For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
