  1. How long can CometSlides™ be stored after electrophoresis?

    • Prior to staining, slides immersed in 70% ethanol for 5 minutes and then dried can be stored at room temperature for 1 year prior to staining. Permanent records can be created after staining for visualization by standard light microscopy using the CometAssay® Silver Staining Kit (Catalog # 4251-050-K).
