Mix-n-Stain™ Total Protein Prestain Kits are a new method for super-sensitive protein quantitation by  SDS-PAGE or western blot. Using the kits, you can quickly and easily label proteins in lysates or purified proteins with near-infrared CF® dyes before electrophoresis and blotting. The labeling can detect as little as 1 ng protein in an SDS-PAGE gel.

Mix-n-Stain™ prestaining eliminates the challenge of choosing an unbiased internal control for western blot normalization. Plus, total protein staining with Mix-n-Stain™ prestain shows superior linearity for western normalization compared to housekeeping proteins. Mix-n-Stain™ Protein Prestain Kits come with your choice of two near-IR fluorescent CF® dye colors.
