Thermo Scientific MassRuler Express Forward and Reverse DNA Ladder mixes are specially designed for fast and reliable DNA quantification in short separation distances under various electrophoresis conditions (see Table 1). In the forward versions, the mass of each DNA fragment is directly proportional to the fragment size whereas, in the reverse versions, the mass is inversely proportional to fragment's size.

The intensity of the fragment in each ladder is calibrated against a standard that guarantees the precise quantity of each band. The ladders are mixtures of chromatography-purified, individual DNA fragments.

• Accurate DNA sizing and quantification—DNA ladder fragments are quantified spectrophotometrically
• Fast and reliable DNA quantification &mdash short separation distances under various electrophoresis conditions
• Sharp bands
• Easy-to-remember fragment sizes and quantities
• Ready-to-use—premixed with 6X MassRuler DNA Loading Dye for direct loading and room temperature storage
• Supplied with loading dye for sample DNA
For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
