Bio-Rad gel documentation systems are market-leading, reliable, and easy-to-use systems for all your DNA and protein gel documentation needs. See below for a short list of compatible dyes and stains.
Stain-free enabled imaging systems, when used with Bio-Rad's stain-free gels, allow immediate visualization of proteins without the time, mess, and cost associated with traditional gel staining and destaining.
The NEW GelDoc Go Imaging System
Enhanced performance — gel documentation in three simple taps plus robust data acquisition and analysis with the Image Lab Software for protein gels, nucleic acid gels, or colorimetric blots.
Flexibility. Power. Efficiency.

Stain-Free Western Blotting
Stain-free western blotting allows you to quickly check electrophoresis and blot transfer quality and obtain truly quantitative western blotting results, updating traditional blotting techniques with innovative tools.
Faster Results. Better Data.
Applications and Technologies
Protocols, video tutorials, and selection guides are available to help you at every step of your electrophoresis experiments.
Learn about gel boxes, running buffers, agarose types, and other factors affecting resolution in DNA gel electrophoresis.
2-DE is an essential step in protein characterization, purification and profiling, and posttranslational modification studies.
Visualize proteins on gels and blots without staining and destaining steps, and use total protein normalization for quantitative western blots.
ChemiDoc Imagers offer best-in-class performance for fluorescence and chemiluminescence detection and all general gel documentation applications.
Find the right Bio-Rad protein gel for your application. Choose SDS-PAGE and native PAGE gels, convert to TGX Precast Gels, or choose specialized gel chemistries.
Image acquisition and analysis software for Bio-Rad Gel Doc, ChemiDoc, and GS-900 Systems. Capture and analyze digital image data from electrophoresis gels and blots.
Prestained and unstained molecular weight standards for protein electrophoresis applications including SDS-PAGE, western blotting, 2-D PAGE, and isoelectric focusing (IEF).
A four-step solution for biological product analysis, this integrated system enables expedited electrophoresis, simplified staining, easy analysis, and data reproducibility.
Stains to visualize and quantify protein bands on gels and blots: Coomassie stains, highly sensitive fluorescent stains, silver stains, negative stains, and total protein blot stains.
Choose molecular rulers with evenly spaced banding patterns (DNA ladders), premixed EZ Load standards, and specialty products such as pulsed field standards.
Cells for submerged DNA gel electrophoresis in five sizes; all include gel casting equipment. Mini-Sub cell GT Systems can also be used with ReadyAgarose Precast Gels.
