• Non-toxic alternative to Ethidium Bromide for nucleic acid gel staining

• Volume: 1mL

• Excitation peak:490nm (blue); 290nm (UV)

• Emission peak: ~530nm; Concentration: 20,000X

• Sensitivity Range for visualization: 0.1-0.3ng of nucleic acid per band

• Use like EtBr by adding a small amount to agarose solution

• Nucleic Acid stain for use with UV or blue light illumination

• Safe alternative to ethidium bromide1

• More sensitive than ethidium bromide (0.1 ng of DNA per band detection limit)

• Emits green fluorescence for ssDNA or dsDNA and red fluorescence for RNA

Brand: SmartGlow

Configuration: Pre-Stain

Manufacturer SKU: E4500-PS

Unit of Measure: EA

Features and Benefits

SmartGlow Nucleic Acid Stains Accuris

Benefits and Protocol of SmartGlow PS and LD Nucleic Acid Stains

Benefits of SmartGlow E4500-PS
  • 20,000x concentration
  • Replaces ethidium bromide (EB) in agarose and polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis; can also be used with UV light visualization
  • Light emission: green fluorescence when bound to dsDNA or ssDNA; red fluorescence
  • Excitation peaks: 490nm (blue); 290nm (UV)
Protocol for SmartGlow E4500-PS
  • Use with prepared 100ml of agarose or polyacrylamide solution
  • Add 5µl of SmartGlow E4500-PS Pre-Stain to gel solution prior to pouring gels
  • For increased sensitivity and improved detection of small quantities of nucleic acid, add SmartGlow PS to running buffer at ratio of 5µl per 100 ml
  • When electrophoresis is complete, view gel using SmartBlue Blue Light Transilluminator
Benefits of SmartGlow E4500-LD
  • 6x concentration
  • Add directly to samples
  • Direct addition to samples eliminates chance of contaminating containers and gels
  • Excitation peaks: 490nm (blue); 290nm (UV)
Protocol for SmartGlow E4500-LD
  • Prepare 100ml of agarose or polyacrylamide solution
  • Pour gels
  • Mix SmartGlow LD with DNA markers and samples at a 1 to 5 (dye to sample) dilution
  • After electrophoresis, view gel using SmartBlue Blue Light Transilluminator
