SafeView™ DNA Stains
SafeView™ products are a new class of fluorescent nucleic acid stains for the detection of double-stranded DNA, single-stranded DNA and RNA in agarose gel electrophoresis. Four formulations are available, including green or red fluorescence and gel-casting or loading dye formats, making them compatible for any experimental preference or setup!
SafeView™ products were designed to replace toxic Ethidium bromide (EtBr) in the laboratory and are non-carcinogenic by the Ames-test. The results are negative in both the mouse marrow chromophilous erythrocyte micronucleus and mouse spermatocyte chromosomal aberration tests.
Our SafeView™ products are classified into two categories:
1. Loading Dye:
This convenient 6X format includes a mixture of the proprietary nucleic acid stain and inert tracking dyes. Simply add Safe-Green™ or Safe-Red™ directly to your sample and load onto an unstained agarose gel.
2. Pre-cast and Post-Stain:
This format can be used to replace your Ethidium bromide workflow completely. SafeView™ Classic or Safe-Red™ Gel is either added into the molten agarose during set up or can be used as a post-stain following electrophoresis.
