Azura SmartStain™ is a safe alternative to EtBr that exhibits excitation peaks at 290 nm & 490 nm, allowing it to be used with UV and blue light.
SmartStain™ 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 or ssDNA and emits red fluorescence when bound to RNA. SmartStain™ PS exhibits excitation peaks at 290 nm and 490 nm, allowing it to be used with UV and blue light.
SmartStain™ 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. SmartStain™ LD emits green fluorescence when bound to dsDNA, ssDNA and RNA.
Nucleic acid electrophoresis (analytical & preparative)
Exhibits excitation peaks at 290 nm & 490 nm, allowing for use with both UV or blue light transilluminators
Enhanced sensitivity compared to EtBr, detect as little as 0.1 ng of DNA
