Safe-Pinky DNA Gel Staining Solution is a sensitive, stable and environmentally safe fluorescent nucleic acid dye designed to replace the highly toxic ethidium bromide (Et-Br) for staining dsDNA, ssDNA or RNA in agarose gels or polyacrylamide gels.
Safe-Pinky DNA gel Staining Solution is far more sensitive than Et-Br without requiring a destaining step. Safe-Pinky DNA Gel Staining Solution and EtBr have virtually thesame spectra, so you can directly replace EtBr with Safe-Pinky DNA Gel Staining Solution without changing your existing imaging system. If you use a green fluorescent gel stain such as SYBR Green I, SYBR Safeor GelStar with a UV transilluminator for viewing gels, you may replace the dye and continue to use the existing SYBRfitler or GelStar filter for photographing.
However, Safe-Pinky DNA Gel Staining Solution cannot be sufficiently excited with a 488nm agron laser or similar visible light and therefore is not recommended for use with a gel reader equipped with such visible light.
- Safer than EtBr
- Compatible with UV Transilluminator
- Replaces EtBr with No Optical Change
- Much more sensitive than EtBr
