EvaGreen® Fluorescent DNA Stain is a superior DNA intercalator dye specially developed for DNA analysis applications including real-time PCR (qPCR) and high-resolution DNA melting curve analysis (HRM). Upon binding to DNA, the non-fluorescent dye becomes highly fluorescent while showing no detectable inhibition to the PCR process. The dye is extremely stable both thermally and hydrolytically, providing convenience during routine handling.
The high quantum yield, excellent stability and lowest inhibition toward PCR makes it the ideal fluorophore in real-time PCR applications and a superior replacement for the widely used SYBR® Green I dye.
EvaGreen® fluorescent DNA stain is supplied as 50x concentration.
Vortex EvaGreen® Fluorescent DNA Stain thoroughly prior to its use. Add 1 μl EvaGreen® Fluorescent DNA Stain for each 50 μl of the assay. Please note that the preparation of a master mix is crucial in quantitative PCR reactions to reduce pipetting errors.
To perform the EvaGreen-based assay simply select the optical setting for SYBR® Green on the detection instrument.
