Product nameECL Express - LumiBlue™
ECL Express - LumiBlue™ (ab270542) is a non-isotopic, luminol-based chemiluminescence substrate, designed for the chemiluminescent detection of immobilized proteins and immobilized nucleic acids conjugated with horseradish peroxidase (HRP).
This product is manufactured by Expedeon, an Abcam company. Expedeon product code ECLS0250 was previously called LumiBlue™ ECL Express - 250ml and is the same as the 250 mL size of this product. Expedeon product code ECLS0500 was previously called LumiBlue™ ECL Express - 500ml and is the same as the 500 mL size.
The peroxidase-catalyzed oxidation of luminol produces a weak flash of light at 425 nm. The incorporation of an electron transfer mediator into the buffer forces the flash signal into a glow and greatly improves the analytical characteristics of the reaction in terms of increased signal intensity and duration. Recent works have shown that, by addition of a suitable acylation catalyst, a further large increase in light output is observed.
ECL Express - LumiBlue™ (ab270542) is most effective for routine and housekeeping western blotting applications. The solution is sensitive enough to detect approximately 20pg of protein per band. Signal intensity remains high for up to 16 hours after blotting and the working solution is stable for up to five days after activation, allowing convenient experiments across a working week and minimizing waste.
