Molecular weight markers are commonly known as DNA ladders, RNA ladders or protein ladders. The main function of the molecular weight markers is used for determination and identification of the molecular size of biological samples on gel electrophoresis by using the principle that molecular weight is inversely proportional to migration rate through a gel matrix. This method has undergone tremendous technological advancements and is now available in a wide range with loading buffer in a single tube, ready to use format which minimizes the time spent on thawing, diluting and adding the tracking dye to the DNA ladder.
