Atlas ClearSight DNA Stain is a new, non-carcinogenic, sensitive and convenient stain to use instead of highly carcinogenic ethidium bromide stain (EtBr) for detecting nucleic acid in agarose gels (Figure 1). It has two secondary fluorescence excitation peaks (~270 nm; ~295 nm) and one strong excitation peak centered around 490 nm. The fluorescence emission is similar to EtBr when bound to DNA – at ~ 530 nm.
