Can GelRed®/GelGreen® be used to stain DNA in acrylamide gels?

Yes, use the post-staining protocol for polyacrylamide gels. For polyacrylamide gels containing 3.5-10% acrylamide, typical staining time is 30 minutes to 1 hour with gels of higher acrylamide content requiring longer staining time.,

Biotium also offers PAGE GelRed® a non-toxic, non-mutagenic dye specifically designed for staining DNA in polyacrylamide gels.
