Product Description

5-Bromo-4-Chloro-3-Indolyl Phosphate Disodium Salt

Application Notes

For the colorimetric detection of alkaline phosphatase-labeled molecules, 5-Bromo-4-chloro-3-indolyl phosphate (BCIP) and Nitro Blue Tetrazolium (NBT) are available. The BCIP/NBT substrate system is versatile and functions in a variety of applications, including Northern Southern, and Western blotting, in situ hybridization, and immunohistochemistry. BCIP disodium salt is soluble in water. It may be used to prepare a stock solution, which in combination with NBT and a reaction buffer, form a substrate solution for alkaline phosphatase. This substrate system, when incubated with alkaline phosphatase, produces an insoluble NBT diformazan product that is easily observable with its purple color.
