VWR Life Science Blue Bandit™ Protein Stain
- Sensitivity below 20 ng of protein per band
- No methanol or acetic acid – use water for destaining
- Ready-to-use stain
Blue BANDit™ is a safer and more environmentally friendly alternative to traditional Coomassie Blue staining procedures. This ready-to-use stain utilizes deionized water for destaining, thereby reducing the handling of hazardous materials and solvent waste in the lab. The easy protocol requires a pre-wash in water for 15 minutes, 1 hour of staining in Blue BANDit™, and a final water wash for 30 minutes. As the bands appear on the gel, the background remains clear, providing an excellent staining of proteins.
