Safe Image™ DNA Stain Pack

Details for Product No. ABIN5684158,
Staining Methods (StM)
Purpose Safe Image™ DNA Stain Pack is used as a substitute for EtBr for post electrophoresis DNA staining.
Characteristics Safe Image™ DNA Stain Pack
Components Safe ImageTM DNA Stain Pack requires only to be mixed with DNA sample before loading the gel. There is no need to add dye in the gel or buffer.
Application Notes Optimal working dilution should be determined by the investigator.

Safe ImageTM represents a new and safe nucleic acid stain for the visualization of double-stranded DNA (dsDNA), single-stranded DNA (ssDNA), and RNA in agarose and polyacrylamide gels. The dyes have the capability to bind to DNA and are thus developed to replace toxic Ethidium Bromide (EtBr, a potent mutagen), a commonly used in gel electrophoresis for visualization of nucleic acids in agarose and polyacrylamide gels. Safe Image™ products are non-carcinogenic by the Ames-test. The results are negative in both the mouse marrow chromophilous erythrocyte micronucleus and mouse spermary spermatocyte chromosomal aberration tests.
