Sigmacell cellulose is used in thin layer chromatography (TLC) and cellulose TLC adsorbents. Sigmacell cellulose has been used in studies to inform industrial applications for large-scale purification of enzymes as well as to investigate the cellulase system of Penicillium echinulatum, which has been identified as a potential cellulase producer for bioconversion processes.
Faster development times than Type 20 (1-4 hours) with a little loss of resolution. May yield a colored background.
High purity cellulose powders for partition chromatography.


500 g in poly bottle
1 kg in poly bottle


For TLC, simply blend a 15-20% aqueous slurry for about one minute and coat plates; dry at room temperature. Usually does not require activation before use.

Ballistic gel was investigated as a tissue-mimicking material in an anthropomorphic cardiac phantom for ultrasound imaging. The gel was tested for its acoustic properties and its compatibility with conventional plastics molding techniques. Speed of sound and attenuation were evaluated in...

Doppler ultrasound flow measurement techniques are often validated using phantoms that simulate the vasculature, surrounding tissue and blood. Many researchers use rubber tubing to mimic blood vessels because of the realistic acoustic impedance, robust physical properties and wide range of...

(1) Background: It is known that sickle cells contain a higher amount of Ca2+ compared to healthy red blood cells (RBCs). The increased Ca2+ is associated with the most severe symptom of sickle cell disease (SCD), the vaso-occlusive crisis (VOC)....

A combined study of crystallinity index (CI), degree of polymerisation (DP) and thermal stability of cellulose was carried out for monitoring the effect of ball-milling. DP and CI are two fundamental quantities that describe the physico-chemical behaviour of cellulose. Milling...

Old human red blood cells (RBCs) have a reduced surface area with respect to young RBCs. If this decrease occurred through the release of vesicles similar to the spectrin-free vesicles that are shed in vitro under different experimental conditions or...
