The Formaldehyde-Free RNA Gel Kit and Rapid Formaldehyde-Free RNA Gel Kit are safer alternatives to formaldehyde containing agarose gels for denaturing electrophoresis of RNA. The kits provide a non-volatile substitute for formaldehyde as well as a non-mutagenic RNA stain, which eliminates the need for ethidium bromide staining. The non-volative denaturing agent included in the gel solution and loading buffer of both kits effectively eliminates RNA secondary structure to ensure optimal resolution during electrophoresis. Gel casting and electrophoresis can be safely performed on the benchtop without a fume hood. In contrast to formaldehyde-free gel kits containing glyoxal, AMRESCO’s kits do not require extended incubation steps or buffer recirculation during electrophoresis.

The Formaldehyde-Free RNA Gel Loading Buffers conveniently reduce the number of steps required for sample preparation and post-electrophoresis RNA visualization. The non-mutagenic, fluorescent dye included in the loading buffers stains RNA during the denaturation step and visualizes RNA immediately post-electrophoresis, without the need for further processing. Bright green bands are detected by standard UV transillumination and a green filter, such as SYBR® Green. Although both kits feature the same safe RNA denaturant and RNA visualization dye, they are distinguished from one another by differences in buffer formulations. The Formaldehyde-Free RNA Gel Kit directly replaces hazardous formaldehyde RNA gels, requiring an equivalent amount of time to resolve RNA. The Rapid Formaldehyde-Free RNA Gel Kit contains specially formulated buffer to enable electrophoresis at higher voltages, thereby reducing electrophoresis time by half. RNA can be resolved effectively in as little as 15 minutes on a 1% agarose mini-gel.

Ordering information: Kit contains two 500mL bottles of 10X gel running buffer, 150mL of 10X gel solution, and three 2mL bottles of 2X gel loading buffer.
