Use Advansta's Background Quenching Sheets to obtain the best images of chemiluminescent Western blots and fluorescent blots and gels.

For Chemiluminescence

Placed under chemiluminescent blots during CCD imaging, the Background Quenching Sheets eliminate noise that can occur with plastic wrap. Stray light entering the imaging system, or emitted from extremely bright bands, can reflect off of the plastic wrap, increasing background that becomes especially apparent during long exposures.

Quenching sheet with chemiluminescent Western blot

Improve chemiluminescent Western blots. Use of a background quenching sheet under a chemiluminescent blot reduces noise that results when stray light scatters off plastic wrap.

For Fluorescence

Placed under the blot or gel during imaging with epi illumination, these sheets absorb background fluorescence in the imaging environment such as that resulting from contamination of equipment.

Quenching sheet with Sybr safe fluorescent gel

Improve fluorescent DNA gels. The use of a background quenching sheet greatly reduces the background fluorescence observed when imaging a DNA gel stained with SYBR® Safe
