SYBR Green Nucleic Acid Gel Stains

  • SYBR Green I stain:
  • Detects as little as 60pg of ds DNA and 1 ng oligonucleotides
  • Optimal for PCR, apoptosis studies, and heteroduplex analysis.
  • SYBR Green II stain:
  • Detects 100 pg of ssDNA and 2 ng of RNA
  • Optimal for RNA electrophoresis and SSCP analysis
SYBR® Green I stain is a highly sensitive fluorescent stain for detecting dsDNA and oligonucleotides in agarose and polyacrylamide gels. Because SYBR® Green's fluorescent signal is greatly enhanced when the dye is bound to nucleic acids, gels stained with SYBR® Green I exhibit an excellent signal-to-noise ratio with no background fluorescence. For maximum performance, gels should be poststained. SYBR® Green I is ideal for detecting small amounts of DNA in low copy/target number PCR products, apoptosis studies, and heteroduplex analysis.

Detection Limits:
-dsDNA at 300nm transillumination: 60 pg
-Oligonucleotides at 300nm transillumination 1-2 ng

SYBR Green II Nucleic Acid Stain:
For ssDNA and RNA, SYBR® Green II offers all the advantages of SYBR® Green I and is ideal for non-isotopic detection of DNA mutations by single-stranded conformation polymorphism (SSCP) analysis. Detection limit at 300 nm ransillumination is 40-80 ng in denaturing gels and 2-4 ng in non-denaturing gels.
