Description

Quick-Load® PCR Marker is a pre-mixed, ready-to-load molecular weight marker containing bromophenol blue as a tracking dye.

The Quick-Load PCR Marker consists of a proprietary plasmid which is digested to completion with appropriate restriction enzymes to yield 5 double-stranded DNA bands that are suitable for use as molecular weight standards for agarose gel electrophoresis. The digested DNA includes fragments ranging from 50–766 base pairs.

Notes

  1. Preparation of DNA: The double-stranded DNA is digested to completion with appropriate restriction enzymes, phenol extracted and equilibrated in storage buffer.
  2. We recommend loading 5-10 μl (0.5-1.0 μg) of Quick-Load DNA Ladder per gel lane.
  3. In general, it is recommended to load 1µl per mm of gel lane.
  4. For long term storage, store at 4°C or -20°C. If stored at -20°C, mix well after thawing.
