Ultra-sensitive DNA stain for the detection of nucleic acids in agarose gels
Safe alternative to ethidium bromide. Non-carcinogenic and non-toxic
Catalogue Number: MG10
- Applications: Staining of DNA/RNA in agarose gels.
- Sensitivity: Ultra-sensitive. Much better than ethidium bromide.
- Safe: Non-toxic, non-mutagenic and non-carcinogenic.
- Compatibility: Optimal for Blue/Green LED technology and Blue LED light. For UV light we recommended MIDORIGreen Advance.
- High Efficiency: Almost no background.
- Flexible: In-gel staining and post staining.
MIDORIGreen Xtra – Non-carcinogenic DNA stain of the latest generation – Ultra-sensitive for LED illumination
MIDORIGreen Xtra is a new highly sensitive green fluorescent stain for a safe visualization of DNA and RNA in agarose gels. This DNA stain is a safe and better alternative to the traditional nucleic acid stain ethidium bromide (EtBr). Remarkably, agarose gels stained with MIDORIGreen Xtra have a very low background fluorescence, which makes the identification of low amounts of DNA very easy. Be one of the first and test MIDORIGreen Xtra for a safe detection of DNA with an unbeatable sensitivity.
Ultra-sensitive DNA signals and low background – Just a perfect signal
MIDORIGreen Xtra is optimized for Blue/Green and Blue LED light, leading to unbeatable fluorescence signals of DNA and RNA in agarose gels. In addition, UV-light is also suitable for the detection of nucleic acid, but less efficient than non-damaging visible light. Remarkably, MIDORIGreen Xtra did not stain the agarose gel, leading to an excellent signal to noise ratio.
Safe Alternative to Ethidium Bromide
MIDORIGreen Xtra delivers even better DNA/RNA signals than ethidium bromide. However, this innovative DNA stain is non-carcinogenic, non-mutagenic and non-toxic and therefore not harmful for your health. Independent laboratories confirmed its safety: Both the mutagenicity test (Ames test) and the cytotoxicity test were negative. Convince yourself and download our safety report.

I have seen a white smear in my agarose gels using Midori Green Xtra and Orange G as loading dye.
We know that the combination of Midori Green Xtra and Orange G will lead to a white smear while using UV light. To avoid this, please use Blue or Blue/Green LED detection systems or use a different loading dye.
