Thermo Scientific dialysis units help facilitate the rapid and trouble-free dialysis of sample volumes from 10 μL to 250 mL. Unlike standard flat tubing, these innovative devices do not require knots or clips that can lead to leaking and sample loss.
Pierce 96-well Microdialysis Plates and Slide-A-Lyzer Dialysis MINI Devices are ideal for small volumes, Slide-A-Lyzer G3 Dialysis Cassettes are recommended for small to medium volumes, and Slide-A-Lyzer Dialysis Flasks are recommended for larger volumes.

Thermo Scientific Slide-A-Lyzer Cassettes protect your precious samples during dialysis and help minimize the hassles and risks of losing your samples using slippery tubing. They're available in sizes from 10 µL to 250 mL and in a full range of MWCOs.
|Slippery when wet|
Flat tubing is difficult to handle when wet, increasing risk of sample loss during sample addition/removal
|sample handling||Easy handling and secure sample delivery|
Plastic frame and cap allow for secure sample addition/removal
|Risk of sample loss|
Sample can leak out if clamp becomes loose or falls off
|sample recovery||Sample protection|
Welded membrane and leak-proof cap helps minimize the risk of sample loss
Non-optimized design that typically requires overnight dialysis
|speed||Fast and efficient|
Innovative design with high surface/volume ratio allows for more rapid dialysis than conventional tubing
Comparison of Thermo Scientific Slide-A-Lyzer Cassettes with traditional dialysis tubing.
A ready-to-use form of traditional dialysis membrane tubing for 10 to 100 mL samples that does not require presoaking or boiling prior to use. SnakeSkin Dialysis Tubing is composed of regenerated cellulose and is available in 3 molecular weight cutoffs and 3 internal diameters.
