Background Quencher™ is a specially designed solution for use as a blocking reagent in hybridization assays. It effectively prevents non-specific binding of hybridization probes and virtually eliminates the need to supplement hybridization solutions with DNA and/or RNA. Background Quencher does not contain any nucleic acids, thereby avoiding problems associated with the use of DNA fragments commonly used to decrease background hybridization. The use of Background Quencher can shorten
prehybridization steps to 15 minutes. It is supplied as a 10X solution and can be used with double- or single-stranded probes, in solutions with or without formamide, and with or without dextran sulfate.
