FastGene® Western ECL Kit – Chemiluminescent Western Blot Detection

The FastGene® Western ECL Kit is an enhanced chemiluminescent (ECL) substrate based on luminol.
It is used to detect horseradish peroxidase (HRP) – conjugated secondary antibodies.
The high femtogram or low picogram detection of antigen is enabled by FastGene® Western ECL Kit brilliant sensitivity and long signal duration.
This long chemiluminescent signal duration makes it possible to detect signals on both digital and film-based imaging systems without any loss in signal intensity.
Appropriate primary and secondary antibody dilutions are suggested for attaining optimal signal intensity and duration.

Workflow using FastGene® Western ECL Kit

Mix the luminol solution and peroxide solution in a 1:1 ratio, and thoroughly agitate the chemiluminescent substrate solution well for preparing the 0.1 ml of solution / cm2 of membrane.
Place the membrane with the protein side up and remove the membrane from the chemiluminescent substrate solution. Image the membrane with a digital imager.

Product comparison

Comparison between the FastGene® Western ECL Kit and competitor products

1000-100 ng BSA were separated in a 4-20% SDS-Page (FastGene® Precast Gel) using a primary antibody 1:5000 alpha-BSA (Invitrogen, A11133, corresponding  to 4 µg). All ECL kits were used under the same experimental workflow.



An IL-6 fusion protein was detected using a primary antibody against IL-6 from mouse and a secondary anti-mouse peroxide (POD) antibody 2 seconds exposure for the Western Blot. All ECL kits were used under the same experimental workflow.

    Wir sehen nach 30sec Inkubation bessere Protein Banden als nach 5min Inkubation mit einem vergleichbaren Kit eines anderen Herstellers.

    Translated by NIPPON Genetics EUROPE:
    We see better protein bands after 30 seconds of incubation than after 5 minutes of incubation with a comparable kit from another manufacturer.
