Breathe-Easy® membrane is permeable to oxygen, carbon dioxide and water vapor, creating separate, highly uniform microculture vessels from a multi-well plate. The membrane comes as a sandwich. The bottom paper liner protects the adhesive layer, and the top carrier sheet protects the outer surface of the highly compliant membrane until it has been placed and adhered to the plate. The liners also assure sterility of each individual membrane. The adhesive seals every well (unlike molded plastic covers), permitting agitation without cross-contamination or microbial infiltration. Compatible with most caustics and organic solvents, stable from −80 to +100 °C. Note: Use of the Brayer (Z380067 sold separately) is recommended to assure uniform adhesion and to facilitate removal of the top paper liner.
Features and Benefits
Sterile & Non-Cytotoxic: Sterilized by gamma irradiation (free of cytotoxins)
Prevent Contamination: Films eliminate well-to-well contamination, microbial and viral contamination, evaporation (excluding breathable membranes) and sample spillage
Ideally Sized and Designed: 6" x 3.25" rectangles fit all microplates. Two scored end-tabs make film positioning and removal hassle-free
Thermal Stability: Designed to withstand a wide temperature range
Easy Specimen Retrieval: Pierceable sealing films facilitate easy removal of samples with a pipet tip

As a field, synthetic biology strives to engineer increasingly complex artificial systems in living cells. Active feedback in closed loop systems offers a dynamic and adaptive way to ensure constant relative activity independent of intrinsic and extrinsic noise. In this...
Conjugative plasmids can mediate the spread and maintenance of diverse traits and functions in microbial communities. This role depends on the plasmid's ability to persist in a population. However, for a community consisting of multiple populations transferring multiple plasmids, the...

Pseudomonas aeruginosa MPAO1 is the parental strain of the widely utilized transposon mutant collection for this important clinical pathogen. Here, we validate a model system to identify genes involved in biofilm growth and biofilm-associated antibiotic resistance. Our model employs a...
Inteins are protein segments capable of joining adjacent residues via a peptide bond. In this process known as protein splicing, the intein itself is not present in the final sequence, thus achieving scarless peptide ligation. Here, we assess the splicing...
