    Abstract

    A method is described for obtaining high resolution, black-and-white, journal quality photographs of electrophoretic protein patterns produced from a variety of stain systems. The photographic procedure employs a 35-mm single-lens reflex camera with an uncoupled, built-in light meter, Kodak Tech Pan Film, Kodak D-19 developer, and Kodak Grade 5 high-contrast paper. The procedure is applicable to a variety of protein stain systems which included Coomassie Brilliant Blue R250, bromophenol blue, silver, negative gold, tetrazolium dyes, and fluorescence.
