Diamond Nucleic Acid Dye
Diamond Nucleic Acid Dye is a sensitive fluorescent dye that binds to single-stranded DNA, double-stranded DNA and RNA, and can be used to stain and visualize nucleic acids in gels. Diamond Nucleic Acid Dye is compatible with denaturing and native agarose and polyacrylamide gels and can be imaged with any standard imaging system, such as by UV transillumination with a Polaroid or digital camera, GE ImageQuant or Bio-Rad Gel Doc systems. The concentrated dye is stable for up to 90 days at room temperature. Diamond Nucleic Acid Dye does not require prewashing or destaining of gels. It is more much more sensitive than ethidium bromide, so less sample nucleic acid and nucleic acid markers are required for visualization, resulting in increased savings with every gel you run.
