  • Introduction

     Better images by removing background fluorescence and stray light
     Improved signal to noise ratios
     Simple – just place sheet under the blot or gel
     Compatible with chemiluminescent and fluorescent Western blots
     Compatible with DNA gels and protein stains – including SYBR green, SYBR Gold, ethidium bromide, SYPRO® Orange, SYPRO Ruby and more


    Use Advansta’s Background Quenching Sheets to obtain the best images of chemiluminescent Western blots and fluorescent blots and gels.

    For Chemiluminescence
    Placed under chemiluminescent blots during CCD imaging, the Background Quenching Sheets eliminate noise that can occur with plastic wrap. Stray light entering the imaging system, or emitted from extremely bright bands, can reflect off of the plastic wrap, increasing background that becomes especially apparent during long exposures.

    For Fluorescence
    Placed under the blot or gel during imaging with epi illumination, these sheets absorb background fluorescence in the imaging environment such as that resulting from contamination of equipment.
