General description

Amersham ECL Prime is a highly sensitive reagent, characterized by stable signal emission, allowing for the possibility of repeated exposures and making it easier to process several blots in the same experimental run. The high intensity of the emitted signals means that proteins can be detected using highly diluted primary and secondary antibodies, contributing to low background and reducing consumption of reagents.

Amersham ECL Prime consolidates and builds on the benefits of Amersham ECL Plus and Amersham ECL Advance to deliver a detection system that is sensitive, stable, precisely quantitative across a wide dynamic range of protein levels, and conservative in its consumption of expensive antibody reagents.


Sensitive quantitative or confirmatory Western Blotting

Features and Benefits

• High signal intensity and sensitivity allows the use of highly diluted primary and secondary antibodies with no reduction in sensitivity.
• Stable signal allows multiple exposures and makes the reagent suitable for large experimental series, allowing convenient handling time between the end of the experiment and detection.
• Optimized for imaging with ImageQuant LAS series (CCD-based imaging) and compatible with Amersham Hyperfilm.
• Compatible with Rainbow Molecular Weight Markers and Amersham ECL DualVue Western Blotting Markers.
• Optimized for use with Amersham Hybond-P (PVDF) membranes and compatible with Amersham Hybond-ECL (nitrocellulose) membranes.
• Recommended membrane Hybond-P or Hybon ECL


The following components are included in the Amersham ECL Prime detection reagent kit.
• RPN2232 Solution A: Luminol solution, 50 ml Solution B: Peroxide solution, 50 ml sufficient for 1000 cm2 membrane
