SafeView™ DNA Stains

Developed to replace toxic Ethidium bromide (EtBr), SafeView™ products are a new class of nucleic acid stains for the visualization of double-stranded DNA, single-stranded DNA, and RNA in both agarose and polyacrylamide gels. Six formulations are available, for compatibility with any experimental setup.

SafeView™ products are non-carcinogenic by the Ames-test. The results are negative in both the mouse marrow chromophilous erythrocyte micronucleus and mouse spermatocyte chromosomal aberration tests.
