General description

Gelatin Blocking Buffer is a standard reagent in Western blotting procedures. It is used to block non-specific binding on the membrane, when using nylon or nitrocellulose (but not PVDF).


1 L in poly bottle


Suitable for use as a non-specific blocking agent for Western blots.


Dissolve entire contents of the bottle in a final volume of 1L molecular biology grade water. The resulting solution will be faint yellow in color and does not require filtering or heating before use.


NONH for all modes of transport
