'''Xylene cyanol''' (XC) is most commonly used as an [[agarose gel electrophoresis]] size marker. It runs alongside different DNA length markers depending on the % of the agarose gel. Despite its smaller molecular weight of 539g/mol it runs slower than [[bromophenol blue]] (670g/mol) because of its charge (1 net negative charge).
