SERVA DNA Stain (Clear) G

SERVA Stains for Nucleic Acids

Besides the classical stain for agarose gels ethidium bromide, SERVA offers a safe, non-carcinogenic alternative: SERVA DNA Stain G and SERVA DNA Stain Clear G. They are at least as sensitive as ethidium bromide and can be used in exactly the same way in agarose gel electrophoresis. The dyes emit a green fluorescence when bound to DNA or RNA. The fluorescence emission is similar to EtBr at ca. 530 nm when bound to nucleic acid. Pre- and post-staining is possible. The post-staining solution is re-usable 2 – 3 times.



SERVA DNA Stain Clear G

SERVA DNA Stain Clear G is a new, non-carcinogenic, much more sensitive and convenient version of our SERVA DNA Stain G. It can be used instead of highly carcinogenic ethidium bromide for detecting nucleic acid in agarose gels. SERVA DNA Stain Clear G emits green fluorescence when bound to DNA or RNA. It has two secondary fluorescence exication peaks (ca. 270 nm and 295 nm) and one strong exication peak centered around 490 nm. The fluorescence emission is similar to EtBr at ca. 530 nm when bound to nucleic acid. Pre-casting and post-staining protocols are applicable. 1 ml of this stain is sufficient for 17 - 25 L of agarose gel.

SERVA DNA Stain G

SERVA DNA Stain G is a safer alternative to traditional ethidium bromide stain for detecting nucleic acid in agarose gels. It is at least as sensitive as ethidium bromide and can be used in exactly the same way in agarose gel electrophoresis. SERVA DNA Stain G can be added to the gel solution, working dilution is 1:20.000 to 1:50.000.SERVA DNA Stain G emits green fluorescence when bound to DNA or RNA. It has one fluorescence exication maximum at ca. 300 nm and another at ca. 450 nm when bound to nucleic acid.

SERVA DNA Stain G is non-carcinogenic and according to the AMES test it causes significantly fewer mutations than ethidium bromide.
