eLuminol™ Protein Gel Stain is a high sensitive fluorescent stain designed for detecting proteins in SDS polyacrylamide gels. It is as sensitive as silver stain. Unlike silver stain, however, eLuminol™ Protein Gel Stain has a linear detection range of at least 3 orders of magnitude. Protein gel staining with eLuminol™ is a very simple and fast protocol. It doesn’t require fixation step, only need one simple staining step with 1X eLuminol™ for 90 minutes or less, followed by a simple destaining step. Protein gel staining with eLuminol™ is compatible with downstream protein analyses such as mass spectrometry and Edman-based sequencing.
eLuminol™ Protein Gel Stain is available as a 1,000X concentrated solution, which can be readily diluted to the 1X working solution using methanol/acetic acid/water solution. It is very convenient for shipping and storage. The price of eLuminol™ Protein Gel Stain is comparable to the commercial Coomassie® Blue-based protein gel staining solutions, while eLuminol™ provides far better sensitivity and user-friendliness.
