General description

Sigma′s DirectLoad 1 kb Ladder contains 11 fragments consisting of 500 bp repeats from 0.5 to 3 kb, 1 kb repeats from 3 to 6 kb, and 2 kb repeats from 6 to 10 kb. For NA electrophoresis, 5 ul of the marker can be loaded directly into a single lane on an agarose or polyacrylamide gel. Suitable for use in Northern and Southern blotting.

Application

Suitable for size determination of dsDNA by DNA electrophoresis with either agarose or polyacrylamide gels.

Features and Benefits

Articles

Markers and Ladders for Gel Electrophoresis

We offers a variety of markers that aid size determination of samples separated by agarose and/or polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. These products include markers for DNA, PCR fragments and RNA and can be concurrently run with the samples. All the markers stain well with common nucleic acid stains.

Selecting DNA, RNA, and PCR Fragment Markers and Ladders for Gel Electrophoresis

Choose the appropriate markers and ladders for nucleic acid size determination of samples separated by electrophoresis. Determine size of DNA, RNA and PCR-generated fragments using agarose or polyacrylamide gels.
