How much GelRed® or GelGreen® should I add to my 6X DNA loading buffer?

Ask a question

We don’t recommend adding GelRed® or GelGreen® directly to loading buffer, because this can result in inaccurate band migration. Biotium offers 6X GelRed® Prestain Loading Buffers designed for this application, although we do not recommended them for applications where precise DNA band sizing is required. For the most accurate determination of DNA band sizes, we recommend using GelRed® post-staining (see the GelRed® protocol for details).
