ZellX® GelGreenSafe DNA stain is a fluorescent nucleic acid stain and a safe and convenient alternative to replace highly toxic Ethidium Bromide (EtBr) for staining double-stranded DNA, single-stranded DNA, and RNA in agarose and polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis.
GelGreenSafe DNA stain has Tree fluorescence excitation peaks, two at UV range at 270 nm and 295 nm and one strong excitation peak in the blue light range at 485-490 nm; and therefore is compatible with a large variety of gel documentation systems including either a 270/295 nm UV trans illuminator or a gel reader equipped with visible light excitation (such as blue LED light box, 488 nm laser-based gel scanner, or Dark Reader®).
It is a highly sensitive DNA gel stain and is far more sensitive than SYBR Safe for analyzing even small fragments due to its reduced nonspecific background fluorescence. Unlike SYBR® dyes, which are known to be unstable, GelGreenSafe is highly stable, both hydrolytically and thermally.
ZellX® GelGreenSafe DNA stain is appropriate for either post-electrophoresis gel staining or precast gel staining.
