A Minor Groove Binding stain

unlike intercalators, MGB stains do not distort your samples
Properties tinto rang Ethidium Bromide SYBR Safe
Binding Mode Minor Groove Binder / External Binder Intercalator Intercalator
Safety 100% Safe Carcinogenic under high concentrations Less hazardous
Sensitivity 0.5ng/band 1-5ng/band 1-5ng/band
Intensity(upon DNA binding) On par with EtBr 20 Fold On par with EtBr
Post Staining* 1-10 minutes 10-30 minutes 10-40 minutes
Post Stain RNA Yes No No

*Time depends on the sample concentration and the thickness of Gel.
