Fluorescent and Luminescent Tools for Life Science

OliGlo™ TAMRA Universal Nucleic Acid Labeling Kit - standard size

Application: Directly labels the phosphate groups (terminal and backbone) on oligonucleotides, DNA or RNA using a TAMRA labeling reagent prepared in situ, causing less disruption of hybridization and allowing labeling that is not sequence dependent.
