dsGreen, an equivalent of SYBR® Green I is a sensitive dsDNA binding dye, which can be used for routine DNA detection in agarose and polyacrylamide gels. A qPCR grade reagent is also available.

Unlike ethidium bromide, dsGreen is highly selective towards double stranded DNA, much less harmful, and offers better sensitivity.

Comparison between ethidium bromide and dsGreen

FeatureEthidium BromidedsGreen
Fluorescence Red (615 nm) Green (524 nm)
Excitation maximum 302 nm 454 nm
Excitation light source UV only Blue light or UV
Sensitivity 2 ng / band (dsDNA)
100 ng / band (RNA)
0.08 ng / band (dsDNA)
1–2 ng / band (oligonucleotides)
Health hazard High Low
