Vista Green

Hello all!

I have a question regarding Vista Green as a dye for agarose gels.  We
are finding differences between that and ethidium bromide.  For
instance, very low molecular weight stuff (read 'junk') stains very
brightly with Vista Green, but hardly visible with ethidium bromide.
Anyone have experience of this?

I did try to see if this had been discussed before, but the archive
only gave me references to Project 'Green' Gene in 'Vista', CA!
