GelStain is a sensitive, stable and safe staining reagent for DNA/RNA. GelStain uses the same wavelength as ethidium bromide (EB), and it is more sensitive than EB.
Non toxicity: GelStain is a specific form of oily macromolecules, which are incapable of entering cells via the cell
High sensitivity: GelStain provides high sensitivity, which can detect low amount of DNA even at 10-20 ng.
Exceptional stability: GelStain can be heated or microwaved.
Signal to noise ratio: Strong fluorescent signal from samples, weak from background.
Like EB, GelStain can be used before electrophoresis gel or after electrophoresis. No destaining is needed.
No optical setting change: standard EB filter and SYBR filter can be used.
The optimal excitation is obtained with UV wavelength approximately at 300 nm.
