Transfer Membranes

High sensitivity, performance and reproducibility

Transfer membranes are used in blotting techniques as the solid phase support upon which proteins or nucleic acids are transferred from gel matrices so that detection and analysis may be performed. After size separation by electrophoresis in a polyacrylamide or agarose gel, proteins or nucleic acids are Immobilized on a solid matrix membrane, facilitating the detection of specific proteins or nucleic acids using antibodies directed against the target of interest.
