Nitrocellulose membranes are pure nitrocellulose media that has high binding capacity for proteins. These membranes are stronger and more durable than other nitrocellulose membranes, and will not rip, tear, or crack during transfers. The nature of this material yields sharper images with little or no distortion.
PVDF Membranes are ideal for chemiluminescent and colorimetric western blots: it retains target protein very strongly during protein transfer but also reduces nonspecific protein binding that can obscure high-sensitivity detection.
Pre-cut blotting papers are ideal for use in transfer sandwiches and cassettes when proteins are transferred electrophoretically from a gel to a nitrocellulose, PVDF, or other membrane
