Safe-Red

ABM, G108-R

Safe-Red is a new and safe nucleic acid stain for the visualization of nucleic acids in agarose and polyacrylamide gels. This dye eliminates the need for toxic Ethidium Bromide (EtBr, a potent mutagen), commonly used in gel electrophoresis.

Description

Features:

  • 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.
