Product News: Protein Markers Add Colour to Gel Comparisons and Separations

28 Jul 2011

A new range of protein markers, ideal for verifying gel comparisons and monitoring electrophoresis separations, are now available from laboratory equipment specialists CLEAVER SCIENTIFIC (CSL).

Designed to add colour to comparisons and separations, CSL Pink Plus and Blue Wide Range Protein Markers can be supplied in standard and wide molecular weight ranges. Each protein marker is covalently bound to a pink or blue colour chromaphore, while different coloured reference bands allow easy identification during electrophoresis and after transfer.

The Pink Plus option is supplied as standard 10-175kDa with 3 reference bands while the Blue Wide version is supplied as 10-245kDa with 2 reference bands. The protein markers, which are supplied in loading buffer for convenient and immediate use, are visible in volumes as low as 3µL per well and are stable for 2 years when stored at -20ºC and 3 months at 4ºC.
