6-Chloro-3-indolyl-b-d-galactopyranoside CAS NO 138182-21-5

  • KEMYSTERY is a supplier of high quality 6-Chloro-3-indolyl-b-d-galactopyranoside CAS 138182-21-5, a substrate for B-​galactosidase.which gives a salmon/rose coloured precipitate thus is also called Salmon-Gal. An alternate for 5-bromo-4-chloro-3-indolyl β-D-galactopyranoside (X-Gal) It can be used with isopropyl-β-D-thiogalactopyranoside (IPTG) to detect β-galactosidase activity in bacterial colonies. As a combination with Iwith 5-bromo-4-chloro-3-indolyl-β-D-glucoside (X-Glc), Salmon-Gal cane be used for simultaneous detection of GUS and Lac activities in the same medium.
  • KEMYSTERY manufactures and supplies Salmon GAL CAS 138182-21-5 globally in custom packs from grams to multi kilos.
