Der Blaue Jonas - the ultrafast protein dye


Just Like Other Dyes - but much faster & simpler

Der Blaue Jonas is a single-step protein gel dye which doesn’t require pre- or post-treatment of the gel.

Just run your protein gel, add the stain, and watch your bands appear in minutes - no destaining required!

Der Blaue Jonas doesn't contain no chemicals or acids, so it’s much safer than other dyes and can even be disposed of in the sink after staining!

Der Blaue Jonas is a water-based product, which means that it causes no observable shrinkage or wrinkling of the gel.

Unlike methanol-based stains, proteins isolated from Der Blaue Jonas treated gels are 100% compatible with mass spectrometry analysis.
