Evaluate Total RNA Integrity With Less Sample
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, allowing users to use less RNA sample to quickly verify RNA is free from degradation and DNA contamination. 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.).
