Sensitivity and Protein-to-Protein Consistency of Flamingo™ Fluorescent Gel Stain Compared to Other Fluorescent Stains
1 Oct 2014
Fluorescent stains are commonly used for detection and quantitation of separated protein. The study described in this poster compares the performance of four commercial staining products: Flamingo fluorescent gel stain (Bio-Rad Laboratories), SYPRO Ruby protein gel stain (Invitrogen Corp., also distributed by Bio-Rad Laboratories), Deep Purple total protein stain (GE Healthcare), and Krypton protein stain (Pierce Biotechnology). The limit of sensitivity for each stain is determined using visible-light laser imaging and UV transillumination.
