General description

Sigma′s DirectLoad Wide Range DNA Marker contains 16 fragments from 50 – 10,000 bp, with bands regularly spaced. Ten ul of the ladder can be loaded directly in a single lane on an agarose or polyacrylamide gel.


Suitable for size determination of PCR-generated DNA fragments with either agarose or polyacrylamide gels.

Features and Benefits

  • Ready-to-load
  • Easy-to-use
  • Popular band sizes


Sigma′s DirectLoad Wide Range DNA Marker is provided in a gel-loading solution of 2.5% Ficoll (Type 400), 0.0125% bromophenol blue, and 0.00625% xylene cyanol.

Other Notes

Contains 16 fragments, 50–10,000 bp which produce logically spaced bands on an agarose gel.
For optimal resolution, the recommended agarose gel concentration is 0.75 – 2.0%.

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.
