Staining Trays

April 28, 2023

Our staining trays are made out of stainless steel. This allows you to heat them on a heating stirrer.
Inside they have a grid ~1 cm above the tray bottom. Below the grid - on the tray bottom - a magnetic bar could be placed.
This combination of heat and stirring is the most efficient and the quickest Coomassie staining: ‘Hot Coomassie Staining’.
All our staining trays are equiped with a grid and a lid.


all staining trays from EDC have a “Grid” that holds the gel (gel face down) over the magnetic stirrer bar. See right picture.

The assembling of the Hot Coomassie Staining in a steel tray: The staining tray is placed on a magnetic heater. The gel lays gel-face down on the grid. Below the grid stirs the magnetic bar
