ProteoSilver Silver Stain Kit

Silver Staining Kit


 kit sufficient for 25 mini-gels (10 × 10 cm)

Quality Level


protein staining: suitable

General description

Conveniently packaged, extremely stable, and highly sensitive, ProteoSilver is an ideal product for any protein scientist. The kit contains prepared solutions of silver staining reagents along with detailed instructions to achieve optimal results. With a detection limit of 0.1 ng/mm2 of protein (BSA) and an extremely low background, ProteoSilver leads to superior detection of low abundance proteins.


ProteoSilver Silver Stain Kit has been used for staining of the gels for visualizing proteins.

Features and Benefits

  • Premixed and preweighed solutions reduce time and cost of purchasing and preparing individual components
  • Optimized protocols help establish conditions for best results
  • High sensitivity and low background ensure very low abundance proteins can be detected and resolved from other proteins
  • MALDI Compatible - Protein spots of interest can be further characterized by mass spectrometry
  • Room Temperature Stability allows easy and convenient storage
