Special Requirements?


runSAFE is a non-mutagenic fluorescent reagent that produces instant visualization of DNA bands upon Blue Light or UV illumination of agarose gels. Supplied in 6X DNA Loading Buffer, runSAFE is used to prepare DNA markers and samples for loading on agarose or
polyacrylamide gels. It is the most sensitive stain available for detecting the double-stranded DNA (dsDNA). It contains three tracking dyes (Bromophenol Blue, Xylene Cyanol FF, and Orange G) for visually tracking the DNA migration during the electrophoresis process. It is ideal for the environment requiring a safe , non-hazardous alternative to Ethidium Bromide

Storage Store at 4°C up to 12 months. For longer periods, store at -20°C. runSAFE Dye is light sensitive and should be stored protected from light.
