High-capacity PVDF membranes for Western, Southern and Northern blotting applications.
Thermo Scientific Pierce PVDF Membranes are sheets and rolls of high-quality polyvinylidene difluoride membrane that provide high binding capacity for proteins and nucleic acids for Western, Southern and Northern blotting methods.
These PVDF (polyvinyl difluoride) membranes are more resistant to discoloration than other commercially available PVDF membranes and have better retention of adsorbed proteins than other types of transfer membranes used for Western blotting, including nitrocellulose. The standard 0.45-micron pore size membrane is available as pre-cut sheets and a roll. The Low-Fluorescence PVDF membrane has a 0.2-micron pore size and is ideal for use with fluorescent probes. This membrane has lower background levels and increased sensitivity for fluorescent probing than regular PVDF or nitrocellulose membranes.
Western blotting – PVDF transfer membranes manufactured especially for protein transfer and Western blot applications
Compatible and durable – polyvinyl difluoride (PVDF) is compatible with most organic solvents, acids and mild bases; doesn't tear or become brittle like nitrocellulose
Easy to use – pre-cut PVDF sheets are ready to use for transfer and blotting experiment from standard precast and homemade mini gels (SDS-PAGE)
Specialized options – choose the 0.45µm variety for colorimetric and chemiluminescent detection; use the low-fluorescence membrane (0.2µm) for fluorescent blotting
