Optitran® Reinforced Nitrocellulose Membranes

Optitran membranes consist of pure 100% nitrocellulose supported by an inert polyester non-woven material within the membrane. The support does not affect transfer conditions or results and gives the membrane exceptional handling characteristics, allowing it to be reprobed repeatedly.
The Optitran nitrocellulose membrane provides high sensitivity with very low non-specific binding. Using standard nitrocellulose protocols, stringent washing and blocking conditions are not necessary. The combination of flexibility, strength and excellent signal-to-noise ratios makes the Optitran membrane ideal, especially when experiments involve repeated stripping and reprobing.
Optitran binding capacity: 75-90 μg/cm2; autoclavable (liquid cool cycle)
