 The two markers available are: 1) a low-range protein marker (e.g. 5-100 kDa) and 2) a high-range protein marker (e.g. 50-250 kDa), but it is possible for the protein to lie outside the range of either marker or within the range of both markers. The two markers available are: 1) a low-range protein marker (e.g. 5-100 kDa) and 2) a high-range protein marker (e.g. 50-250 kDa), but it is possible for the protein to lie outside the range of either marker or within the range of both markers.
