Thermo Scientific Pierce Western Blotting Filter Papers are pre-cut cotton sheets for wet or semi-dry, passive or electrophoretic transfer of proteins from polyacrylamide gels (SDS-PAGE) to PVDF, nitrocellulose, or other membranes.

Features of Western Blotting Filter Paper, Extra Thick:

Two thicknesses—choose extra-thick filter paper for high capacity blotting or to eliminate using multiple sheets (standard thickness paper for traditional procedures also available)
High-quality—clean cotton cellulose fiber paper manufactured with additive-free ultrapure water to eliminate sources of background signal and artifacts
Easy to use—pre-cut filter paper sheets in several convenient sizes for use with most mini gel sizes, tank transfer cassettes and semi-dry blotters
Validated—tested and recommmend for use with various protein methods, including tank and semi-dry transfer

Sheets of blotting paper are necessary components of transfer sandwiches and cassettes that typically must be assembled for various kinds of protein or nucleic acid, gel-to-membrane, transfer protocols. High-quality Pierce Western Blotting Filter Papers are available as standard-thickness and extra-thick sheets that are pre-cut for convenience with mini gels. Choose a paper with the thickness and dimensions appropriate for specific gel sizes and device platforms or cassettes.

Pierce Western Blotting Filter Papers are composed of high-quality alpha cotton cellulose fiber for use in Northern, Southern, and Western blotting applications. These blotting papers help to ensure quick and efficient transferring molecules from a gel to membrane of choice. These filter papers are manufactured with ultrapure water without additives to minimize possible sources of background signal.

Pierce filter papers are suitable for use with alcohol or other organic solvents commonly used in protein and nucleic acid blotting applications. With certain transfer devices, two thicknesses and several pre-cut sizes provide for optimal wicking, drying and blotting properties. In such cases, one sheet of extra thick paper may be more convenient or effective.
