Gel Red
Description

GelRed(TM) can be used to stain dsDNA, ssDNA or RNA in agarose gel via either precast or post gel staining.

 

GelRed(TM) from Biotium is an ultra-sensitive, extremely stable and environmentally safe fluorescent nucleic acid dye designed to replace the highly toxic ethidium bromide (EB) for staining dsDNA, ssDNA or RNA in agarose gels or polyacrylamide gels.

GelRed is far more sensitive than EB without requiring a destaining step.

GelRed and EB have virtually the same spectra, so you can directly replace EB with GelRed without changing your existing imaging system. GelRed(TM) can be used to stain dsDNA, ssDNA or RNA in agarose gel via either precast or post gel staining.

GelRed can also be used to stain dsDNA, ssDNA or RNA in polyacrylamide gel via post gel staining and it is also compatible with downstream DNA manipulations such as digestion with a restriction enzyme, Southern blotting techniques and clonings.

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