StainIN™ RED Nucleic Acid Stain is a significantly safer alternative to ethidium bromide. It is same easy to use, twice as sensitive and much more secure. At least twice as economical as competing products, this novel stain can be also used and disposed with less environmental and health concerns compared to ethidium bromide.
StainIN™ RED is a fluorescent dye that allows detection of >0,3 ng of DNA in both agarose and polyacrylamide gels. It binds to both ds DNA, ssDNA and RNA and emits red fluorescence detectable under the UV light and documented with same filters as ethidium bromide. For cloning applications, UV exposure shall be minimized.
Much smaller than ethidium bromide carcinogenicity of the dye 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™ GREEN Nucleic Acid Stain for cloning applications and Blue light detection.
