Xylene Cyanol FF is used as a tracking dye to monitor the progress of electrophoretic separation. This tracking dye usually migrates with DNA molecules around 5 kb. Therefore, if you are monitoring the progress of longer runs, Xylene Cyanol FF is the tracking dye of choice.
NOTE:Tracking dyes may interfere with the ability to visualize the fragments that comigrate with them.
