A selection of products for staining proteins in electrophoresis gels.

A major tool in the analysis of a species' proteome is the ability to separate and visualize the proteins by electrophoresis, 1D or 2D, and then the subsequent visualization of the proteins. G-Biosciences has developed a wide selection of electrophoresis gel stains for visualizing proteins that vary in sensitivity, staining time and reversibility.

A guide to aid in selecting the best stain for your research, "How To Select A Protein Gel Stain" is available in the technical literature.
