Ideal for excitation of nucleic acids with UV or visible blue light transilluminators. Unlike EtBR, SmartGlow is non mutagenic and does not require special methods of disposal
SmartGlow PS (Pre Stain) can be used as a direct replacement for Ethidium Bromide in agarose and polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. The stain emits green fluorescence when bound to dsDNA, ssDNA and RNA. SmartGlow PS exhibits excitation peaks at 290nm and 490nm, allowing it to be used with UV and blue light.
SmartGlow™ LD (Loading Dye) is supplied at 6X concentration and is added directly to the samples. No dye needs to be added to the gel or running buffer. After electrophoretic separation, view and document your results using a UV or blue light illuminator. SmartGlow™ LD emits green fluorescence when bound to dsDNA, ssDNA and RNA.
