Classically bacterial lipopolysaccharide (LPS) purification and silver staining take several days. We designed a simple and fast method for LPS isolation which when combined with silver staining using Pharmacia PhastSystem™ both can be completed in few hours. The purity of LPS isolated by this simple method may not be comparable to that by the phenol-water method hence we recommend this rapid isolation and staining procedures for simple and fast study of LPS patterns in gels.
