CDP-Star™ Substrate (0.25 mM Ready-To-Use) with Nitro-Block-II™ Enhancer

Back to top


The CDP-Star® Substrate with Nitro-Block-II™ Enhancer is a chemiluminescent alkaline phosphatase substrate, ready-to-use for protein or nucleic acid blotting on nitrocellulose membranes.

This CDP-Star® chemiluminescent substrate for alkaline phosphatase let you detect alkaline phosphatase and alkaline phosphatase-labeled molecules with unparalleled sensitivity, speed, and ease.

• Chemiluminescent substrate provides highly sensitive replacements for the widely used fluorogenic substrate methylumbelliferyl phosphate (MUP), and the colorimetric substrate p-nitrophenyl phosphate (pNPP).
• Low background luminescence coupled with high-intensity light output enables detection of alkaline phosphatase labels with the highest possible sensitivity and signal-to-noise.

Versatile Chemiluminescent substrates exhibit high sensitivity in membrane-based applications such as Southern, northern, and western blotting. Both substrates can also be used in solution-based assays such as immunoassays, DNA probe assays, enzyme assays, and reporter gene assays. Maximum light levels are reached in approximately 10 minutes and glow emission persists for several hours. Solution assays require chemiluminescent enhancer. Membrane-based assays may also require it for increased light output and sensitivity.
