QuickBlue Protein Stain - better than InstantBlue
Like Coomassie Blue - only simpler. QuickBlue is a single step protein gel dye. This novel product doesn’t require pre- or post-treatment of the gel. Just run your protein gel, add the stain and watch your bands appear in several seconds.
Advantages of QuickBlue
- Complete staining in 15 minutes, no destaining needed
- Store at room temperature, re-use up to 3 times
- Contains no harmful chemicals or acids, can be disposed of down the sink after staining
- 100% compatible with mass spectrometry analysis
Other “fast” gel staining technologies require expensive equipment or can poorly stain the protein bands. And no other “fast” product is as fast as QuickBlue – completing the entire staining procedure in about 15 minutes (for typical protein amounts). Don’t worry though, it is impossible to over-saturate using this product, so you can incubate overnight with no harmful effects.
Check out the gel on the right (15 minute stain, no destain): clear, sharp bands with virtually no background - that's the power of QuickBlue.
