DNA/RNA and Proteins Silver Stain Kits

DNA/RNA Silver Stain Kit and Protein Silver Stain Kit are rapid, ultra-sensitive and versatile silver stain system for nucleic acids or protein detection in polyacrylamide gels, yielding consistent and reliable results with many 1D and 2D gel types.

BioVectis Silver Stain Kit is a silver (Ag) protein stain that yields a remarkably clear and uniform gel background while delivering consistent, high-sensitivity staining results at each and every use. The protocol has been optimized for flexibility by allowing short gel fixation and staining steps without affecting staining performance (sensitivity or clarity). This feature is beneficial when performing densitometric analysis of silver stained gels.



  • Sensitive silver stain – detect nucleic acids fragments at 10 pg level Proteins at 0.25 ng;
  • Short staining time : 20-30 minutes for DNA/RNA depending on the gel thickness
  • Clear background – method produces intensely-stained protein gels with very low background level
  • Robust performance – kit yield excellent staining results amidst differences in user technique and performance
  • Gel-compatible – well staining performance with a variety of precast mini-gels and SDS-PAGE buffer-systems
  • Workflow-compatible – mild chemical formulation ensures compatibility with mass spectrometry, sequencing and other downstream procedures that depend on destaining and nucleic acids and protein recovery



  • Sensitizer, stain, developer and enhancer solutions
