Description

Application

A ready-to-use, precipitating substrate system for alkaline phosphatase. This substrate system produces an insoluble NBT diformazan end product that is blue to purple in color and can be observed visually. Immunohistochemical staining with BCIP/NBT utilizes requires organic mounting media and can be counterstained with Nuclear Fast Red or Light Green. BCIP/NBT is generally a more sensitive method than Fast Red. Not recommended for ELISA (microwell) procedures.

Caution

It is recommended to store the product between 4 - 8 °C. Do not freeze. The product may be stored at room temperature for up to one year. If a precipitate forms, the solution can be gently swirled or filtered.

Packaging

100 mL in poly bottle
