Protocols Using X-Gal:

How to make a 20 mg/ml X-Gal Stock Solution

1. Weigh 200 mg of X-Gal into a 15 ml polypropylene centrifuge tube.
2. Add 10 mL of Dimethylformamide (DMF). Vortex to dissolve the X-Gal. 
3. Store at -20°C. Wrap the centrifuge tube in aluminum foil to protect from light.

Note: The X-Gal solution is stable for 6-12 months unless improperly handled. We recommend making 1 ml aliquot portions of the solution to minimize degradation if there will be frequent small scale use of the X-Gal solution.
