Thermo Scientific™ Slide-A-Lyzer™ Dialysis Cassettes help facilitate the rapid and effective dialysis of sample volumes ranging from 100 μL to 30 mL. The cassette design helps maximize surface area to sample volume ratio and enables excellent sample recoveries.
In comparison to standard flat tubing, these innovative cassettes do not require knots or clips that may lead to leaking and sample loss, helping to obtain more complete sample recovery. They are available in 4 volume capacities and in molecular weight cutoffs (MWCOs) of 2K, 3.5K, 7K, 10K, and 20K.
Choose your Slide-A-Lyzer cassette by volume & molecular weight cutoff (MWCO)
|Molecular weight cut off||0.1–0.5 mL||0.5–3 mL||3–12 mL||12–30 mL|

Table 1. Quantitative sample recovery.
Three sample volume batches of water (0.5 mL, 1.7 mL and 3.0 mL) were loaded and recovered per the respective manufacturer’s instructions in a Slide-A-Lyzer Dialysis Cassette or conventional dialysis tubing to determine the volumes of recovery. Water volume recovered was determined gravimetrically.

Thermo Scientific Slide-A-Lyzer Cassette procedure summary
1. Insert syringe needle through the gasket via one of the corner ports. Inject the sample, withdraw the excess air and remove the syringe.
2. Attach a float buoy and dialyze. (Buoys also serve as convenient bench-top stands for the cassettes.)
3. Insert empty syringe needle at a second corner port. Inject air to expand the cassette chamber, then withdraw the dialyzed sample.
