The SilverQuest Silver Staining Kit has been specifically designed to make protein detection compatible with mass spectrometry analysis. The SilverQuest reagent set contains a sensitizer that contains no glutaraldehyde or formaldehyde, so it leaves lysine and arginine side-chains unmodified. Additionally, the SilverQuest destaining solution effectively removes silver from protein bands in polyacrylamide gels. Peptides remain as efficient targets for in-gel trypsin digestion and gel extraction and yield better coverage during mass spectrometry analysis.
