10 minute protein staining system: eStain L1

The eStain L1 system from GenScript is a highly efficient protein PAGE gel staining system, offering fast 10-minute gel staining and de-staining, saving hours compared to traditional methods. The system uses Coomassie Brilliant Blue and GenScript's patented protein staining technology to integrate the traditional three steps of fixing-staining-destaining into one quick and simple step. Compatible with all types of precast, as well as conventional staining methods, gel stained using eStain show crisp bands with minimal background and exceptional sensitivity, detecting as low as 12.5 ng of protein.
