“The focus of azooka is to develop safe DNA/RNA fluorescent stains for applications in Biological sciences and Genomics. tintorangTMis the  first ever food grade nucleic acid gel stain making it the safest option currently available in the world” said Dr.Fathima.

“We are thrilled with this much needed discovery. tintorangTM  stains in 30 seconds while SYBR Gold takes 10 minutes. It is also 7 times more sensitive than Ethidium Bromide, making it the world’s safest and fastest DNA/RNA stain. The best property of tintorangTM is that it doesn’t alter the structure of the DNA and can be used for multiple tests” said Prof. H S Savithri, whose advice played a crucial role in the research activities of azooka.

“tintorangTM,  will be available for researchers and businesses in molecular diagnosis space in India by second quarter of , 2016″ said Alex D Paul, Cofounder and President. He further added “We are ready with a global plan for tintorangTM, to be made available in key markets via select distributors and partners by the fourth quarter of 2016
