Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc. announced the availability of a technical note (tech note 5782) entitled “In-Gel Protein Quantitation Using the Criterion Stain Free Gel Imaging System.”
Bio-Rad’s Criterion Stain Free system is a protein visualization system that utilizes the standard conventions of SDS-PAGE. Consisting of a new formulation of Bio Rad’s Criterion precast gels, a Criterion Stain Free imager and Image Lab software, the Criterion Stain Free system triggers protein fluorescence and generates a digital image of the gel after electrophoresis.
The in-depth technical note offers a comparison of standard SDS-PAGE/Coomassie staining and Criterion Stain Free system workflows, showing a 70% reduction in experiment time with the Criterion Stain Free system. Rinsing, staining and destaining steps are eliminated from the workflow when using the system, and the imaging and analysis steps are automated, thus reducing post-electrophoresis time.
