Brightness

Brightness

(Science: microscopy) The brightness of an extended luminous source is termed the intensity per unit area measured in candles per cm exp2. Also, the intensity of reflection, it may be measured in lamberts, one lambert equals 1 lumen/cm exp2. The quality of being luminous; emitting or reflecting light; its luminosity is measured relative to that of our sun.

Brightness of the 3 Kb band - Why?

What is the purpose of the brightness of the 3 Kb band in a DNA ladder? I know it will help permit easy identification of the band to use it as a reference point, but what other purposes does the brightness serve? Thanks in advance!

Re: separation problem with GelRed

... differently. SYBR safe is also a non-toxic and non-carcinogenic alternative to Ethidium Bromide, which is microwavable with the agarose. The brightness of the bands was almost double that of ethidium. Good luck! I hope my suggestion is not too late for you.
