The Low DNA Mass Ladder is suitable for estimating the mass (quantity) of unknown DNA samples by ethidium bromide staining. Prepared from a specially constructed plasmid, the ladder consists of an equimolar mixture of six blunt-ended fragments from 100 to 2,000 bp. Electrophoresis of 4 µL of Low DNA Mass Ladder results in bands containing 200, 120, 80, 40, 20, and 10 ng (470 ng total) of DNA, respectively.

Product use
For reliable comparison of band intensities, the loading volume of the ladder should be the same as the volume of the experimental sample. Smaller volumes routinely give sharper bands. Do not heat the ladder before loading.

Note: The closer the size of the sample band relative to the band of comparable intensity in the Low DNA Mass Ladder, the more accurate the mass estimation will be.
