Innovative dyes for science. Expert solutions for scientists.


Innovation is at the very heart of what we do every day. As a small technology company, we understand the importance of innovation to our competitiveness and growth. The company devotes a significant amount of resources to research and development and intellectual property protection. Our efforts have resulted in a growing number of granted and pending patents that cover a wide array of molecular and cellular biology applications.

Our offerings include the following trademark product lines:

CF® dyes: A series of 28 highly water soluble dyes with colors spanning the entire visible and near infrared spectra;made using breakthrough chemistries to produce unrivaled performance in brightness and photostability

Mix-n-Stain™ Antibody Labeling Kits: A revolutionary fast and simple antibody labeling technology;  choose from more than 20 fluorescent CF™ dyes,  fluorescent proteins, enzymes, or biotin

GelRed™ and GelGreen™ nucleic acid gel stains: The safest and most sensitive DNA gel stains on the market

DNAzure® visible DNA gel stain:  A unique and superbly sensitive visible blue DNA gel stain

One-Step Blue® and One-Step Lumitein™ protein gel stains: Safe and simple fluorescent or visible protein gel stains

EvaGreen® DNA-binding Dye: A superior qPCR dye, the preferred alternative to SYBR® green; the only dye that works well for both qPCR and highly sensitive melt curve analysis

NucView® Caspase 3/7 Enzyme Substrates: A novel series of fluorescent probes to detect caspase-3 activity in live cells by releasing a fluorescent dye upon substrate cleavage

AccuClear®, AccuBlue® and AccuGreen™ DNA Quantitation Kits:  A full range of DNA quantitation kits for a variety of instruments and concentration ranges, including kits with the lowest dsDNA detection limit and widest linear range in the market
