Better than InstantBlue - try our new QuickBlue Protein Stain

QuickBlue - never wash or destain again

Forget Instant Blue - our QuickBlue performs better. 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.

  • 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

How QuickBlue works

One-step in 15 minutes

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.
