Description & Specifications

Get high quality protein staining with low background in 6 to 11 minutes with the Thermo Scientific™ Pierce™ Power Stainer.

The Thermo Scientific Pierce Power Stainer is a device for fast, uniform Coomassie staining of proteins in polyacrylamide gels.

The Pierce Power Stainer is designed for rapid Coomassie staining of proteins in up to two mini polyacrylamide gels and subsequent removal of unbound stain from the gel in a single step. Traditional Coomassie staining techniques require a 1-hour to overnight staining step and a separate destaining step(s) for desired results. When using the Thermo Scientific Pierce Power Staining Kits, the Pierce Power Stainer provides efficient protein staining and gel destaining in 6 to 11 minutes producing results equivalent to, or better than, traditional Coomassie staining techniques. The Thermo Scientific Pierce Power Station component of the Power Stainer has an easy-to-use color LCD touchscreen interface and pre-programmed gel staining protocols. The easy-touch programming feature allows custom staining settings to be quickly created, saved and run.

Highlights:

  • Fast – Coomassie staining and destaining of proteins in polyacrylamide gels in just 6 to 11 minutes (less than 20 minutes total protocol time)
  • Convenient – simultaneous staining and destaining of 1 to 2 mini gels or 1 midi gel
  • Integrated Power Supply – optimized to deliver efficient staining equivalent to, or better than, traditional Coomassie staining techniques
  • Optimized Accessories – gel pads included in the Power Staining Kits enable uniform staining and minimize blotchy background staining
  • Easy to Use – intuitive, color LCD touchscreen interface and pre-programmed staining methods. Software includes "Learn as you run" tutorials
  • Cost Effective – cost for consumables is comparable to other solution-based staining (~$3.80/ mini gel)
  • Flexible – works with precast and homemade SDS-PAGE gels
  • Upgrade-ready – adding the Pierce Power Blot Cassette (22835) activates the pre-loaded software making this unit a fully functional Pierce Power System with blotting and gel staining capabilities.

Includes:
  • System consists of the Pierce Power Station and Pierce Power Stain Cassette; also includes Western Blot Roller, Power Cord with C/13 Connector, and Quick Start Guide
  • Unit ships with North American power cord; country-specific power cords are also available
Applications:
  • Coomassie staining and destaining for protein visualization in polyacrylamide gels
Requires:
  • Pierce Power Staining Kits

Optional:
  • Pierce Power Blot Cassette - activates pre-loaded software to enable rapid semi-dry Western blotting

Product Details:

Polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (PAGE) is a technique where charged molecules are separated according to physical properties, such as charge or mass, as they are forced through a sieving gel matrix by means of an electrical current. Proteins are commonly separated in this manner to identify individual proteins in complex samples or to examine multiple proteins within a single sample. Denaturing and reducing SDS-PAGE, the most widely used electrophoresis technique, separates proteins primarily by mass. Once protein bands have been separated, they can be transferred to membrane for analysis by Western blotting or they can be visualized directly in gel by various staining or detection methods such as Coomassie blue or silver staining. Traditional solution-based Coomassie staining protocols can take several hours to overnight to achieve suitable results. The Pierce Power Stainer utilizes electrophoretic transport of the negatively charged Coomassie R250 molecules to rapidly stain protein bands and remove unbound dye from the gel within a single 6 to 11 minute step depending on gel size.
