Description

General description

Xylene cyanol is often used as a tracking dye during agarose or polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. It has a slight negative charge and will migrate the same direction as DNA, allowing the user to monitor the progress of molecules moving through the gel. The rate of migration varies with gel composition.

Packaging

10 g in glass bottle

Reconstitution

A 6x Gel Loading Buffer can be made using standard recipes, including 0.05% xylene cyanol.

Application

Xylene Cyanol FF is used as histological stain and as tracker dye in DNA sequencing and electrophoresis.1,2

Biochem/physiol Actions
