SYBR® Green I stain is a highly sensitive fluorescent stain for detecting dsDNA and oligonucleotides in agarose and polyacrylamide gels. Because SYBR® Green's fluorescent signal is greatly enhanced when the dye is bound to nucleic acids, gels stained with SYBR® Green I exhibit an excellent signal-to-noise ratio with no background fluorescence. For maximum performance, gels should be poststained. SYBR® Green I is ideal for gel-based detection of small amounts of DNA in low copy/target number PCR products, apoptosis studies, and heteroduplex analysis.
