Ordering Information

GreenStar™ Nucleic Acid Staining Solution I (200X) is an alternative product of Ethidium Bromide (EtBr), which is known as a carcinogen. GreenStar™ Nucleic Acid Staining Solution I contains a fluorescent dye, which is stable and environmentally safe. It can be used for post staining as well as pre-casting gel staining. Its excitation and emission wavelengths are 496 nm and 522 nm, respectively. Stained nucleic acid can be seen with either conventional UV-transilluminator or blue-light transilluminator. Blue-light transilluminator is preferred as it has higher sensitivity with our product.

Features and Benefits

- Safety: EtBr is a toxic substance that can mutate DNA. GreenStar™ Nucleic Acid Staining Solution I contains fluorescent nucleic acid dye as a safe alternative.
 
- Sensitivity: GreenStar™ Nucleic Acid Staining Solution I has an excellent staining ability - less than 20 ng of DNA can be seen with high intensity with pre-casting method. Alternatively, DNA band can be observed in 10 minutes when post-staining method is used. Blue-light transilluminator provides brighter DNA band.
 
- Minimal DNA Damage: Blue-light transilluminator can be used for cloning, to minimize DNA damage.
 
- Economical: GreenStar™ Nucleic Acid Staining Solution I is inexpensive compared to competitors' products. No additional equipment is required except either conventional UV-transilluminator or blue-light transilluminator.
 
- Ease of Use: GreenStar™ Nucleic Acid Staining Solution I shares same staining method with EtBr. It can be diluted in either 1X TAE or 0.5X TBE. When making a pre-casting gel, it can be heated with agarose. Therefore gel solution does not need to be cooled when adding GreenStar™ Nucleic Acid Staining Solution I, which saves time. For post-staining method, de-staining stage is not required.
 
- Reproducibility: Product quality is monitored and regulated via ISO 9001 quality system. For this reason, our product has minimum variation and high reproducibility.
