The Bio&SELL dyes for nucleic acids (ssDNA, ds DNA, RNA) in agarose or polyacrylamide gels:
GreenGel DNA/ RNA Stain and RedGel DNA/ RNA Stain
A more comfortable, sensitive, safe and environmentally friendly alternative to carcinogenic ethidium bromide.
The advantages at a glance:
- high-sensitive - very low amounts can be detected (0.1 ng DNA (GreenGel))
- extremely stable at room temperature (please protect from light!)
- no destaining after electrophoresis - saves valuable time
- non-toxic, non-carcinogenic - safer than ErBr, easier & more cost-effective disposal
The non-carcinogenicity of the dyes was detected in the Ames test.
