BCIP Substrate Kit (for in situ immunostaining & Western blotting)                                                                                                          Price

Product Description: Alkaline phosphatase (ALP) and horseradish peroxidase (HRP) are two reporter enzymes widely used in immunoassays
due to their stability. In addition, ALP is a sensitive marker of embryonic stem cells and induced pluripotent stem cells. 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 application and detection of pluripotent stem cells. 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.
