Visio Real-time Protein Stain (sufficient for 2 minigel)
Visio is a sample-loading buffer and protein stain in one.
Visio quickly binds to the proteins in your sample before loading, resulting in visible bands that develop during gel electrophoresis. No staining or destaining steps are required. Visio makes it possible to monitor protein electrophoresis in real time, and is completely compatible with downstream mass spectrometry.
Visio is sensitive, convenient, and does not interfere with migration.
Additionally, Visio exhibits high sensitivity comparable to Coomassie staining (Figure 1) and does not affect protein migration through 1D gels (Figure 2).
Figure 1: High sensitivity
Figure 2: Visio does not affect protein migration. Duplicate samples were run on the same gel. Samples on the left were labeled with Visio before electrophoresis, while the gel on the right was stained by Coomassie after electrophoresis.
