Luminol and oxidizing solutions (each bottle)

Chemical Properties

Light Sensitive
It is soluble in most polar organic solvents but is insoluble in water.


Luminol is used by forensic investigators to detect trace amounts of blood left at crime scenes, as it reacts with iron found in hemoglobin. It is used by biologists in cellular assays for the detection of copper, iron, and cyanides, as well as of specific proteins by western blot. For chemiluminecent HRP-based detection of western blotting systems.

Mix equal amounts of luminol and oxidizing solution, then incubate the membrane for 1 min. Expose membrane to x-ray film for at least one minute. Adjust exposure as necessary.
