    10X Fish Gelatin Blocking Agent

    From: $56 Sizes: 100 mLCatalog #: 22010

    10X Fish Gelatin Blocking Agent is a solution of cold water fish skin gelatin that can be added to blocking buffers to minimize non-specific antibody binding in immunodetection procedures such as Western Blotting and immunostaining. Unlike BSA or milk, fish gelatin does not contain IgG or serum proteins that could cross-react with mammalian antibodies.
