All staining reagents for protein and nucleic acid electrophoresis are of course not only ultrapure qualities but as well extensively tested in SERVA’s application lab. The use in the production of SERVA’s staining kits guarantees a constantly high lot to lot quality.
SERVA Blue G (cat. no. 35050) or SERVA Blue R (cat. no. 35051) are suitable for preparing sensitive staining solutions for SDS PAGE gels, while SERVA Violet (cat. no. 35072) is particularly recommended for staining IEF gels.
SERVA's ready-to-use Ponceau S solution (cat. no. 33427) allows easy, reversible protein staining on transfer membranes to check blot efficiency.
SERVA DNA Stain G (cat. no. 39803) and SERVA DNA Stain Clear G (cat. no. 39804) are a safe, non-carcinogenic alternative to traditional ethidium bromide. Sensitivity is at least as high as that of ethidium bromide and they can be used in exactly the same way in agarose gel electrophoresis.
Highest sensitivity is achieved with SERVA HiSens Stain G (cat. no. 39805), a highly sensitive, non-carcinogenic, non-toxic nucleic acid fluorescent dye that has been specially developed for use in the in gel staining of agarose gels.
