Loading Dyes & DNA Gel Stains
DNA Gel Stains
The nucleic acid gel stains GreenView, GreenView Plus, GreenView Ultra, and RedView were developed for pre- and post-gel staining. These stains are next-generation fluorescent nucleic acid gel stains designed to replace the highly mutagenic ethidium bromide (EB). These dyes are superior to EB by having a combination of high sensitivity, low toxicity, and great stability.
LabOmics offers next-generation fluorescent nucleic acid gel stains SafeGreen and SafeRed, which have extraordinary binding affinity to ensure the dye/DNA association remains stable during electrophoresis. Thus, samples can be prestained with SafeGreen or SafeRed before electrophoresis, thereby reducing the hazard inherent in handling large volumes of EB. We also offer more classical loading dyes such as 6x DNA Loading Dye Buffers that are used to prepare DNA markers and samples for loading on agarose or polyacrylamide gels. The optimized solutions contain different mixtures of three dyes: Bromophenol Blue, Xylene Cyanol FF and Orange G for visual tracking of DNA migration during electrophoresis.
