FAQ: Can I use the TriDye™ Ultra Low Range DNA Ladder with GelRed® or SYBR® Dyes?

We recommend using GelRed®, GelGreen®, SYBR® Safe, SYBR® Gold and SYBR® Green I as post-electrophoresis stains only. Using them as dyes precast in the gels might interfere with the migration of the smallest DNA fragments and result in an abnormal band pattern. Optimization might be required for proper visualization of all DNA fragments. Intensity of some bands might vary.
