Finally, a Sensitive RNA Stain for Agarose Gels
Still staining RNA using ethidium bromide?
Staining RNA with ethidium bromide (EtBr) requires a significant amount of the dye yet still offers very limited sensitivity for RNA when prestaining or post-staining gels. EMBER500™ was developed by Biotium scientists to offer much brighter signal and higher sensitivity than EtBr for RNA gel staining. For maximum convenience, EMBER500™ RNA Prestain Loading Dye includes formamide as well as electrophoresis tracking dyes, allowing sample denaturing, loading, tracking, and staining in a single step. The prestain is supplied as a 2X concentration, for convenient loading of sample and dye in equal volumes.
Features and benefits of EMBER500™
- Sensitive: Brighter and much more sensitive than EtBr
- Convenient: Denature, load, track and stain RNA samples in a single step on a regular agarose gel
- Versatile: Stains both DNA and RNA for evaluating total RNA integrity and DNA contamination
- Flexible Detection: Detect with UV transilluminators or blue LED gel imagers

Evaluate RNA and detect gDNA contamination
EMBER500™ stains both DNA and RNA, allowing allowing the detection of contaminating genomic DNA in purified RNA samples (Fig. 2.).
Works with both UV transilluminators and blue LED Gel Imagers
EMBER500™ stains also offers flexible detection for both UV transilluminators with standard filters, or blue LED gel images which eliminate UV exposure hazards (Fig. 3.).
