General description

Gelatin Blocking Buffer is a standard reagent in Western blotting procedures. It is used to block non-specific binding on the membrane, when using nylon or nitrocellulose (but not PVDF).


Suitable for use as a non-specific blocking agent for Western blots.


Dissolve entire contents of the bottle in a final volume of 1L molecular biology grade water. The resulting solution will be faint yellow in color and does not require filtering or heating before use.

Storage Class Code

11 - Combustible Solids

Gelatin Blocking Buffer for Direct Detection Southern or Western Blotting

In order to specifically detect an antigen or target molecule immobilized on a solid support, unoccupied binding sites on the support must be blocked against binding by probe and detection molecules.

Northern and Southern Blot Protocols & Introduction

An introduction to both Northern and Southern blotting, popular methods for the transfer of macromolecules to membranous support. This article also offers a Southern blot protocol and a northern blot protocol.
