BGSafe Stain (10,000x) is a new and safe nucleic acid stain for visualization of double-stranded DNA, single-stranded DNA, and RNA in agarose gels. It developed to replace toxic ethidium bromide.
BGSafe Stain is non-carcinogenic (approved by Ames-test) and emits green fluorescence when bound to DNA. It has two excitation wavelength peaks when bound to nucleic acid, at 290nm and 490nm. The emission wavelength for the DNA SafeStain is 530nm.
