Description: MIDORIGreen Xtra is a new highly sensitive green fluorescent stain for a safe visualization of DNA and RNA in agarose gels. This DNA stain is a safe and better alternative to the traditional nucleic acid stain ethidium bromide (EtBr). Remarkably, Agarose gels stained with MIDORIGreen Xtra have a very low background fluorescence, which makes the identification of low amounts of DNA very easy.
Ultra-Sensitive DNA Signals And Low Background – Just A Perfect Signal
Ultra-Sensitive For LED Illumination, MIDORIGreen Xtra is optimized for Blue/Green and Blue LED light, leading to unbeatable fluorescence signals of DNA and RNA in Agarose gels. In addition, UV-light is also suitable for the detection of nucleic acid, but less efficient than non-damaging visible light. Remarkably, MIDORIGreen Xtra did not stain the Agarose gel, leading to an excellent signal to noise ratio.
Safe Alternative To Ethidium Bromide
MIDORIGreen Xtra delivers even better DNA/RNA signals than ethidium bromide. However, this innovative DNA stain is non-carcinogenic, non-mutagenic and non-toxic and therefore not harmful for your health. Independent laboratories confirmed its safety: Both the mutagenicity test (ames test) and the cytotoxicity test were negative
Storage: Store at 4°C, protected from light
Notes: it is recommended to spin the vial in a microcentrifuge prior to use to ensure that all of the product is collected at the bottom. You can tap it on the bench to collect as much as possible if you do not have a microcentrifuge.
