Nucleic Acid Stains
Ethidium Bromide staining of DNA by intercalation within the Nucleotide structure, is a tried and tested method for the visualisation of DNA in Agarose or Acrylamide gels under UV conditions.
The solutions are used to detect both single stranded and double stranded DNA. As this material is a known carcinogen and mutagen its use, though widespread, particularly as a powder, is of concern to most workers. The easiest method of reducing the hazard is to supply the material as a solution ready made to the desired concentration.

Thistle Scientific now provides Ethidium Bromide as a solution at a concentration of 10mg/ml in line with most published formulae.

This product is also available in a convenient dropper bottle. The dropper bottle format is very popular with teaching departments; this form of packaging can accommodate both single use applications for use in kits or supplied in higher volumes and concentrations to suit end user requirements. Our standard off the shelf concentration is again 10mg/ml.

As well as Ethidium Bromide, we also supply addition dyes such as Propidium Iodide (1mg/ml), Sybr Green II and Acridine Orange for high sensitivity applications.

Protein Stains
Coomassie Blue (CCB) is widely used in visualising proteins separated by either agarose or acrylamide gel electrophoresis.

The use of which normally involves lengthy staining and de-staining of gels using both glacial acetic acid and methanol. These solvents are both toxic and poisonous and need to be disposed of with hazardous waste. In order to avoid these materials we have formulated coomassie blue G250 into a colloid which is both non toxic and non hazardous. The colloidal solution represents a safer way to apply the dye to the gels and is both easy and less expensive to use.
