MapMarker® from BioVentures
The Next Generation in Single-Stranded Fluorescent DNA Sizing Standards
MapMarker® are sets of high quality fluorescently labelled DNA fragments, designed to provide consistent intensities and migration patterns for DNA sizing standards and are compatible with all fluorescent-based separation instrument systems. MapMarker DNA fragments are uniformly spaced to provide accurate base calling and precision sizing of samples.
MapMarker® contains singular DNA strands with a single fluorophore and bands ranging from 50 to 1000 base pairs. Only single strands are labeled with a single dye; the products are available with all of the most commonly used fluorescent dyes, including rhodamine, tetramethylrhodamine, x-rhodamine and fluorescein.
