Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP) Staining Kit                                                                                                                                                       Price

Product Description: Alkaline phosphatase (ALP) and horseradish peroxidase (HRP) are two reporter enzymes widely used in immunoassays
due to their stability. 5-Bromo-4-chloro-3-indolyl phosphate (BCIP) is a synthetic chromogenic substrate, which upon cleavage by alkaline
phosphatase is converted to 5-bromo-4-chloro-3-indole and inorganic phosphate. In the presence of a tetrazolium salt such as NBT or MTT,
5-bromo-4-chloro-3-indole is further converted to an insoluble dark blue diformazan precipitate, thus enabling its use for sensitive ALP-based
protein detection. The working solution can be used for ALP-based in situ immunostaining and Western blotting. The kit is sufficient for preparing
200 ml of ALP staining solution.
