SERVA DNA Stain Clear G
Nontoxic and highly sensitive EtBr alternative
SERVA DNA Stain Clear G is a new, non-carcinogenic, much more sensitive and convenient version of our SERVA DNA Stain G. It can be used instead of highly carcinogenic ethidium bromide for detecting nucleic acid in agarose gels.
SERVA DNA Stain Clear G emits green fluorescence when bound to DNA or RNA. It has two secondary fluorescence excitation peaks (ca. 270 nm and 295 nm) and one strong excitation peak centered around 490 nm. The fluorescence emission is similar to EtBr at ca. 530 nm when bound to nucleic acid.
Pre-casting and post-staining protocols are applicable.
1 ml of this stain is sufficient for 17 – 25 L of agarose gel.
|SE-3980401||SERVA DNA Stain Clear G, (sufficient to stain ~400 gels of 50ml each), 1ml|
|SE-3980402||SERVA DNA Stain Clear G, (sufficient to stain ~2,000 gels of 50ml each), 5x1ml|
AMRESCO – EZ-Vision™, safe replacement for EtBr
EZ-VISION™ is a non-mutagenic fluorescent reagent that produces instant visualization of DNA bands upon UV Illumination of agarose gels(*). EZ-VISION™ products are supplied in AMRESCO’s 6X DNA Loading Buffer.
EZ-VISION™ Three contains 3 tracking dyes that migrate at 4,000bp, 400bp, and 10bp; EZ-VISION™ One has all the benefits of EZ-VISION™ Three, and contains only one fast tracking dye that migrates at approximately 10bp in a 1% agarose gel. EZ-VISION™ forms a tight complex with the sample DNA and co-migrates with it during electrophoresis. DNA bands can be visualized immediately after the run by placing the gel on a standard UV transilluminator. Post-run staining and destaining is completely eliminated.
EZ-VISION™ is non-mutagenic and eliminates hazardous shipping and handling considerations. It is ideal for applications needing rapid DNA band visualization and for environments requiring a safe, non-hazardous alternative to Ethidium Bromide.
(*)The EZ-VISION™ is not sutible for Acrylamide gel nor for RNA staining.
