Silver Enhancer Kit has been used to determine the presence of gold nanorods in various tissues and to prepare silver enhanced gold colloids for electron microscopy.

Características y beneficios

Colloidal gold labels are normally visible only at the electron microscope level. Silver Enhancer enlarges the gold colloid label by precipitation of metallic silver to give a high contrast signal visible under a light microscope. A darkroom is not necessary for this procedure, as the silver enhancer working solution is light-stable for 20-30 minutes under ordinary laboratory lighting.


The Silver Enhancer kit consists of Solution A (silver salt), Solution B (initiator), Sodium Thiosulfate (fixer), and a Technical Bulletin describing their use.


Solution A and Solution B are mixed 1:1 immediately before use and applied to the slide holding the gold-labeled section. After 5-10 minutes, the slide is rinsed with distilled water, fixed for 2-3 minutes in a sodium thiosulfate solution, and rinsed again. The section is now ready for counterstaining and mounting as required.
