- Convenient: Safe-Red™ is provided as a 6X loading dye, and is mixed directly with samples before gel loading. Inert tracking dye is included to monitor gel progress.
- Easy to Use: View and document your results as you would with EtBr staining. Safe-Red™ can be excited with UV light, and has maximum emission at 630 nm.
- Safe: Non-carcinogenic.
- Sensitive: Detect as little as 0.3 – 0.8 ng of DNA per gel band.
- Superior: EtBr is known to cause strand breaks and nicks in DNA. Using Safe-Red™ minimizes such damage, yielding higher transformation rates and lower mutation rates verses EtBr.
Application: Safe Detection of dsDNA, ssDNA and RNA in agarose and polyacrylamide gels.
