MS Compatibility of Protea Silver Stain Kit and ProteaGel Solutions

Silver staining of proteins is a useful technique for the detection of minor protein components that are difficult to visualize by standard Coomassie blue stains. Silver stains are 50 to 100-fold more sensitive than conventional Coomassie stains and thus capable of detecting low nanogram quantities of protein on gels. The Protea Silver Stain formulation is unique in that the staining process can be completed in about 35 minutes (including the 15 min. fixing step) without sacrificing the sensitivity of detection. In addition, the silver stain kit is compatible with MALDI analysis.
