Safe Image™ Red DNA Stain

Details for Product No. ABIN5684161,
Staining Methods (StM)
Purpose Safe Image™ Red DNA Stain is used as a substitute for EtBr for post electrophoresis DNA staining.
Characteristics Safe Image™ Red DNA Stain
Components Safe ImageTM Red DNA Stain has an Excitation Wavelength of 540 nm and Emission Wavelength of 630 nm, and its sensitivity range is between 0.3-0.8 ng. Safe ImageTM Red DNA Stain stains must be added to the sample before loading it to the gel. Safe ImageTM Red DNA Stain will stain all nucleic acid templates (dsDNA, ssDNA and RNA) in one color. Safe ImageTM Red DNA Stain does have an additional excitation wavelength of around 300 nm. The other wavelength reported is for other people who may decide to use other light sources for the visualization. During electrophoresis, when bound to DNA, Safe ImageTM Red DNA Stain emits red fluorescence.
Application Notes Optimal working dilution should be determined by the investigator.

Safe ImageTM DNA Stains represents a new and safe nucleic acid stain for the visualization of double-stranded DNA (dsDNA), singlestranded DNA (ssDNA), and RNA in agarose and polyacrylamide gels. The dyes have the capability to bind DNA and thus are developed to replace toxic Ethidium Bromide (EtBr, a potent mutagen), commonly used in gel electrophoresis for visualization of nucleic acids. 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
