* All products supplied as 250 µL of a 5 mM solution, with exceptions noted. † Wavelengths of excitation (Ex) and emission (Em) maxima, in nm. All excitation and emission maxima were determined for dyes bound to double-stranded calf thymus DNA in aqueous solution, except for the SYTO RNASelect green-fluorescent cell stain, which was determined for the dye bound to Escherichia coli RNA. ‡ Molecular weight (MW) for the anhydrous compound. The preceding ~ symbol indicates an approximate value, not including counterions. § Supplied as individual 50 µL vials. ** Unit size = 100 µL. †† Supplied as 250 µL of a 1 mM solution.
