New Midori Green DNA Stain from Anachem
Product News May 17, 2010
Anachem introduces Midori Green DNA Stain, that has none of the hazards traditionally associated with using ethidium bromide stain for detecting nucleic acid in agarose gels. Midori Green is as sensitive as ethidium bromide and can be used in exactly the same way for agarose gel electrophoresis.
When bound to DNA or RNA, Midori Green DNA Stain emits green fluorescence. It is compatible with a wide variety of gel reading instruments due to having one strong excitation peak centred around 500nm and two secondary fluorescence excitation peaks (~300nm and ~400nm). The fluorescence emission is centred around ~540nm.
Midori Green DNA Stain is non-carcinogenic and according to the Ames test it causes significantly fewer mutations than ethidium bromide.
