EvaGreen Dye

EvaGreen® is a DNA-binding dye with many features that make it a superior alternative to SYBR® Green I for qPCR. Apart from having similar spectra, EvaGreen® has three important features that set it apart from SYBR® Green I: EvaGreen® has much less PCR inhibition, is an extremely stable dye, and has been shown to be non-mutagenic and non-cytotoxic. EvaGreen® is compatible with all common real-time PCR cyclers – simply select the standard settings for SYBR® Green or FAM!

What is the difference between dye-based and probe-based systems?

Dye-based detection (e.g., EvaGreen®, SolisGreen®, SYBR® Green) is a cost-effective qPCR option, as it requires only addition of PCR primers. However, the intercalating dye will detect any dsDNA (non-specific amplicons, primer dimers) produced in the reaction. Melt curve analysis performed after the qPCR can be used to verify the specificity of amplification and to check for the presence of non-specific amplification products.

The probe-based qPCR system demonstrates higher specificity compared to dye-based qPCR, because probes only detect the gene of interest. Keep in mind that in probe-based assays, primer dimers and non-specific products will not be detected, however, they may compromise the PCR efficiency. Using probe-based qPCR system, it is possible to distinguish between sequences with high similarity (e.g. single-nucleotide variations). Additionally, probe-based qPCR assays allow for multiplex reactions in one tube, while only a single target can be amplified and measured in a dye-based qPCR.

What is the difference between EvaGreen® and SYBR® Green?

Both dyes are DNA intercalating agents that are used to stain dsDNA.

EvaGreen® dye is spectrally similar to FAM or SYBR® Green I, which means that no change in optical settings is required for using an EvaGreen®-based qPCR mix.

EvaGreen® was reported to have several benefits over SYBR® Green I:

  • EvaGreen® dye has less background than SYBR® Green I due to its novel “release-on-demand” DNA-binding mechanism,
  • EvaGreen® is less inhibitory in the PCR reaction than SYBR® Green I, enabling the use of higher dye concentration for maximal signal and better high-resolution DNA melt analysis,
  • EvaGreen® is non-mutagenic, non-cytotoxic and environmentally safe,
  • EvaGreen® is very stable under PCR condition and during routine storage and handling, whereas SYBR® Green I is known to degrade following multiple freeze-thaw cycles and under PCR conditions.
What is the difference between EvaGreen® and SolisGreen® dye?

Both dyes are DNA intercalating agents that are used to stain dsDNA. SolisGreen™ dye is spectrally similar to EvaGreen® allowing detection in the FAM or SYBR® Green I channel (SolisGreen™ excitation maximum 489 nm, emission maximum 515 nm). It has been shown that qPCR mixes based on SolisGreen™ dye have increased performance with low target concentration demonstrating improved precision and less variance between technical replicates.

After first-strand cDNA synthesis, how much cDNA template should I use for my PCR?

Recommended final amount of cDNA sample in downstream PCR reaction is up to one tenth of the final reaction volume. Overload of cDNA sample may compromise the downstream PCR, because cDNA sample may contain reaction components that may inhibit your PCR reaction.

Why do certain kits contain a ROX?

ROX (carboxy-X-rhodamine) is one of the passive reference dyes providing a constant fluorescent signal that is used for signal normalization during the amplification cycles. The emission recorded from a reference dye during the baseline cycles is used to normalize the emission recorded from the reporter (e.g. EvaGreen®, SolisGreen®, SYBR® Green, etc.) in later cycles in ROX-dependent real-time PCR systems (e.g. Applied Biosystems 5700, 7000, 7300, 7700, 7900HT, StepOne™, StepOnePlus™). Reference dye compensates for small fluorescent fluctuations and well-to-well variations that may occur.

In Solis BioDyne qPCR mixes we use technology, based on ROX, that allows us to use same mix for high- and low- ROX requiering cyclers.
