Brilliant Blue R is used for detection of protein bands following electrophoresis. It is a sensitive stain for protein detection in polyacrylamide gels, typically giving blue bands on a clear background with a sensitivity of 50-100 ng/band. It may be combined with other stains, such as silver stain, to distinguish different types of proteins. It displays metachromasia by appearing pink-red, rather than blue, when binding certain proteins, such as collagen and histone H1.
