Your gel just finished running – what do you do next?
In this video, Dan shows you how to disassemble your SDS-PAGE gel, and how to stain it using PageBlue, Coomassie, or Silver Staining.
Coomassie is the older method of staining, and gives bright blue bands on the gel. PageBlue is similar, but provides a quicker alternative. If you have faint bands and require a more sensitive method, you can use Silver Staining.
Choose whatever method you need, but beware of the hazardous materials that may be used.
