GelRed® is an ultra-sensitive, extremely stable and environmentally safe fluorescent nucleic acid dye designed to replace the highly toxic ethidium bromide (EtBr) for staining dsDNA, ssDNA or RNA in agarose gels or polyacrylamide gels.
- Non-toxic & non-mutagenic
- Safer then ethidium bromide
- Ultra-sensitive and stable
- Simply to use
- Easy disposal
- Compatible with downstream applications such as cloning and sequencing
The safety profile of Gel Red® is in part due to its large size which makes the dye impermeable to cell membranes.
Gel Red® is an alternative to SYBR Green and SYBR safe dye.
This product is available in a 0.5ml and 10ml size. Samples are also available.
