FAQ: Can I use Midori Green with the DNA Ladders from NEB?

NEB DNA Ladders, including the Quick-Load Purple 1 kb Plus DNA Ladder (N0550), are compatible with Midori Green dye with no interference observed. Please follow dye manufacturer's recommendations exactly. Due to low dye intensity, you may need to load between 1 and 2 μg of the DNA ladder to achieve good visualization under standard UV illumination conditions.
