GelGreen™ Nucleic Acid Stain

GelGreen™ Nucleic Acid Stain

Cambridge Bioscience offers a safe, highly sensitive, stable and environmentally safe green fluorescent nucleic acid stain. Designed as a safer and exceptionally stable alternative to SYBR® Green I for staining dsDNA, ssDNA or RNA in agarose gels, GelGreen™ is more sensitive than SYBR Safe and unlike SYBR dyes, which are known to be unstable, is hydrolytically and thermally stable

GelGreen™ has a UV absorption between 250 nm and 300 nm and a strong absorption peak centred around 500 nm and is compatible with either a 254 nm UV transilluminator or a gel reader equipped with visible light excitation (such as a 488 nm laser-based gel scanner or a Dark Reader).

GelGreen™ is More Sensitive than SYBR® Safe

Comparison of GelGreen™ and SYBR® Safe in post gel staining using 1% agarose gel in TBE buffer. Two-fold serial dilutions of 1 kb Plus DNA Ladder from Invitrogen were loaded onto each gel in 4 lanes in the amounts of 200 ng, 100 ng, 50 ng & 25 ng, respectively, from left to right.
