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
