General description

InstantBlue is a ready-to-use solution stain that is specially formulated for ultra-fast (less than 15 min), sensitive (5 ng per band (BSA)) and safe detection of your proteins. Protein gels can be stained with InstantBlue in minutes without the need to wash, fix or destain. Gels can remain in the stain for weeks without concern. Only the proteins are stained resulting in well-defined blue bands on a highly transparent background. The reduction of background interference results in a better signal to noise ratio and may also have a positive impact on the overall resolution and sensitivity. The InstantBlue formulation is non-toxic and does not contain any methanol. Proteins stained using the InstantBlue stain are also compatible with mass spectrometry (MS) analysis.


InstantBlue has been used in coomassie staining to validate the presence of proteins from SDS-PAGE gels. It has also been used for staining SDS-PAGE gels.


contains Coomassie dye, ethanol, phosphoric acid and solubilizing agents in water. (Caution: Phosphoric acid is a corrosive liquid.)
