RedSafe Nucleic Acid Staining Solution (20,000x) is a safe nucleic acid staining reagent and an alternative to EtBr (ethidium bromide).

When bound to nucleic acids, the RedSafe Nucleic Acid Staining Solution exhibits two fluorescence excitation maxima at 309 nm and 419 nm and is visible at a wavelength of 514 nm. Compared with EtBr, a potent carcinogen, RedSafe Nucleic Acid Staining Solution showed almost no mutation in the Ames test and negative results in mouse marrow chromophilous erythrocyte micronucleus test and mouse spermary spermatocyte chromosomal aberration test.
