For each application the right ladder
The FastGene® DNA ladders were developed for different applications: The MWD50 was designed for the most accurate discrimination of small PCR products, with 50 bp steps up to 500 bp. The MWD100 is the perfect ladder for everyday use. The ladder with 12 fragments starts at 100 bp, therefore being suitable even for small qPCR products, and goes up to 3000 bp so that the sizes of small plasmids and big PCR products can be determined. For very large products and plasmids, Nippon Genetics Europe offers the MWD1. The ladder starts at 250 bp and goes up to 10. 000 bp.
MWD50 – FastGene® 50 bp DNA Marker:
The DNA includes fragments ranging from 50-1,500 base pairs. The 200, 500 and 1200 base pair bands have increased intensity to serve as reference points. The approximate mass of DNA in each band is provided (0.56 μg a load) for approximating the mass of DNA in comparably intense samples of similar size.
A unique combination of PCR products and a number of proprietary plasmids were digested with appropriate restriction enzymes to yield the perfect number of fragment, creating ladders that are perfect to be used as molecular weight standards for agarose gel electrophoresis. They come ready-to-use and mixed already with a loading dye.
Stable even at room temperature
All of our DNA ladders (besides the 50 bp ladder) are extremly stable. the stability tests show that the ladders are stable for at least 12 months at 25°C. for long term storage, store at 4°C to -20°C.
Dyes for easy tracking
All our ladders have tracking dyes and loading dyes included, so that the movement of the DNA can be tracked and the optimal stopping point be determined.
