RedSafe™ Nucleic Acid Staining Solution (20,000x) is sensitive, stable and enviromentally safe for nucleic acid staining in agarose gels. RedSafe™ is a superior alternative to replace the highly toxic ethidium bromide (EtBr).

RedSafe™ is as sensitive (or even more) as EtBr and the staining protocol is similar. In contrast to the strongly mutagenic EtBr, RedSafe™ is non-toxic, non-mutagenic and non-carcinogenic. In addition, RedSafe™ introduces much fewer mutations than EtBr staining, making it a superior choice for isolating DNA fragments for subcloning.

  • Used for detecting DNA and RNA in agarose gels
  • Superior for isolation of DNA fragments for subcloning without introducing mutations normally caused by EtBr
  • Same staining procedure as EtBr
  • Detects DNA & RNA at least as sensitive as EtBr
  • The fluorescence emission of RedSafe™ bound to DNA or RNA is centered at 537nm (green)
  • Non-toxic, non-mutagenic & non-carcinogenic
  • No hazardous waste (disposal in the sink!!)

Do you suspect Mycoplasma contamination? Test it!

The contamination of cells with mycoplasma is a very common problem, even though it often goes unnoticed since no cloudiness appears in the cell culture.

If you have a slight suspicion in mind, try out the highly sensitive, specific and rapid ready-to-use EZ-PCR Mycoplasma test kit for the detection of mycoplasma in your cell culture.

The kit includes a unique ready-to-use reaction mix that contains all the ingredients required for PCR: nucleotides, primers, Taq Polymerase, magnesium and a precipitant for direct loading of PCR products onto agarose gel.

You already know your cells suffer from mycoplasma ?

The contamination often causes biochemical changes as well as changes in the immunological properties of the cells. Since mycoplasma-infected cells cannot always be discarded, many complicated methods have been suggested for the elimination of the mycoplasma.

Biological Industries offers antibiotic combinations, which have been shown to be effective in the elimination of mycoplasma species in cell cultures. When using according to instructions, no cytotoxic effects will occur. Download brochure

  • BIOMYC-1 is based on the antibiotic Tiamutin
  • BIOMYC-2 is based on minocycline
  • BIOMYC-3 is based on the ciprofloxacin antibiotic
Mycoplasmas do not develop resistance to BIOMYC-1 & BIOMYC-2!
