GelGreen™ Nucleic Acid Stain Gel Stain, 10,000X in DMSO

Product Description

GelGreen™ is a sensitive, stable and environmentally safe green fluorescent nucleic acid dye designed to stain either dsDNA, ssDNA or RNA in agarose gels. GelGreen™ is far more sensitive than SYBR Safe. Unlike SYBR® dyes, which are known to be unstable, GelGreen™ is very stable, both hydrolytically and thermally. GelGreen™ is compatible with either a 254 nm UV transilluminator or a gel reader equipped with visible light excitation (such as blue LED light box, 488 nm laser-based gel scanner, or Dark Reader®).

GelGreen™ can be used for either post-electrophoresis gel staining or precast gel staining.

A series of safety tests have confirmed that GelGreen™ is noncytotoxic, nonmutagenic and nonhazardous at concentrations well above the working concentrations used in gel staining. As a result, GelGreen™ can be safely disposed of down the drain or in regular trash, providing convenience and reducing cost in waste disposal.

GelGreen™ 10,000X solution in DMSO is for established users of GelGreen™ in DMSO who do not wish to change their laboratory protocols. For new users, we recommend GelGreen™ 10,000X in water (catalog # G-745), which eliminates the hazards of handling DMSO for even better safety. The performance and stability of GelGreen™ 10,000X is comparable in both the water and DMSO formulations.
