One step gel staining in 15 minutes or less.



  • Ultra-fast staining - providing results in 15 minutes or less.

  • Single step procedure - no need to wash, fix, microwave or destain. Just take the gel out of the cassette and place in a container with InstantBlue.

  • High sensitivity - approximately 5-25ng of protein detected per band.

  • Super-Low background staining - Improves overall gel resolution and sensitivity and no possibility of over staining means that you can leave your gel in the stain indefinitely and still be able to read it.

  • Quantitative - Same gel-to-gel performance ideal for quantifying protein by densitometry.

  • Non-toxic - ideal for regular use and disposal.

  • Mass Spec Compatible*.
