What are the advantages of post-electrophoresis staining?

Posted May 2, 2023


Post-electrophoresis staining offers several advantages that make it the preferred technique for accurate sizing of samples. 

Advantages of post-electrophoresis staining include: 

  • Does not affect or alter samples during electrophoresis
  • Provides researchers with more precise analyses of molecular sizes
  • Allows researchers to reuse staining solutions multiple times or use them with multiple gels
