SYBR safe DNA Gel Stain - Stable, as sensitive as EtBr and environmentally safe.
Application Area: DNA staining in electrophoresis gels
"In our busy lab of 10 members, SYBR safe DNA gel stain has been a good alternative to ethidium bromide. It’s as sensitive as EtBr yet less hazardous, and is environmentally safe. It also has a very stable shelf-life."

Great results! Less exposure to toxic reagents!
Application Area:Electrophoresis experiments
"Very easy to use and less toxic than ethidium bromide. No need for a special filter either, you can use the same one you used for ethidium bromide."
SYBR® Safe DNA Gel Stain is a highly sensitive stain for visualization of DNA in agarose or acrylamide gels. SYBR® Safe stain is specifically formulated to be a less hazardous alternative to ethidium bromide that can utilize either blue light or UV excitation.
