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.
