>>Hi bionetter,
>>  I am using a dye named SYBR Green I with no good results.
>>  I have heard that this dye make a better contrast in the UV light and 
>>then better sensitivity in nucleic acids agarose gel electroforresis  but 
>>a have amorphus (abnormal morphology) of the bands.
>>  I do the electroforetic run at:  100volt/300mA/50W and 1.2 Sigma 
>>agarose for a PCR product of 207 bp.  Using TBE 0.5X
>>  I use 1.5 microliter of green per 100ml of agarose
>>This conditions have work for a long time using Etidium bromide but not 
>>with this dye.  
>>The test using higher quantitiest increase the problem
>>       am I using the wrong buffer for this dye?
