StainIN™ GREEN Nucleic Acid Stain is a significantly safer alternative to ethidium bromide.
It is same easy to use, 4X as sensitive (under Blue LED) and much more secure. More economical as other green dyes, this stain can be also used and disposed with less environmental and health concerns compared to ethidium bromide.
It is a fluorescent dye that allows detection of >0,1 ng of DNA in both agarose and polyacrylamide gels. It binds to both dsDNA, ssDNA and RNA and emits green fluorescence when bound to DNA and red fluorescence when bound to RNA detectable under the UV or Blue light and documented with same filters as similar green dyes.
StainIN™ GREEN is ideal for DNA extraction from gels for cloning. Smaller than ethidium bromide carcinogenicity has been proved by Ames-test. Mammalian cell mutagenicity tests, both mouse marrow erythrocyte micronucleus and spermatocyte chromosomal aberration tests gave negative mutagenicity results.
Use highQu ready to use DNA ladders for electrophoresis. Use StainIN™ RED Nucleic Acid Stain in case you stay with ethidium bromide filters for photography.
