Protein staining


Sample-loading buffer and protein stain in one

  • Instant results – see protein bands immediately as electrophoresis proceeds
  • Sensitive – detect as little as 10 to 25 ng per band
  • Fast protocol – no different from standard electrophoresis protocols - replace your current loading dye with Visio and samples labeled and ready to load after heating for 10 minutes
  • Flexible – use with reducing and non-reducing gels
  • Compatible – can be used with downstream mass spectrometry


AdvanStain Ponceau
AdvanStain Ponceau

Protein stain for membranes


  • Quick – detect proteins in 5 minutes or less
  • Reversible – destain in minutes
  • Compatible – after destaining, PVDF and nitrocellulose membranes are ready for Western blotting
AdvanStain Scarlet
AdvanStain Scarlet

Fluorescent protein stain for gels and blots


  • Sensitive – detect less than a nanogram of protein per spot
  • Convenient – simple 3-hour protocol
  • Flexible – stain gels or membranes
  • Reversible – destain for downstream Western blotting or mass spectrometry
  • No speckling – clean background for better data
  • Safe – biodegradable and contains no heavy metals for increased safety and simple disposal
  • Compatible – image with any laser or CCD imaging system. Compatible excitation wavelengths include green (543, 532 nm), blue (488 nm), violet (405 nm) and UV (302, 365 nm). Maximum emission wavelength is 610 nm
