Supported nylon membrane, optimal for all traditional DNA and RNA transfers
- Naturally hydrophilic, no need for wetting agents
- Quality controlled manufacturing process for consistent, accurate results
- Higher binding capacity (approx. 350 µg.cm2) than nitrocellulose
Naturally hydrophilic, MAGNA Nylon membrane eliminates the need for wetting agents that can potentially interfere with biological processes and wets out quickly and evenly. Never turns hydrophobic during a hybridization. UV crosslinking MAGNA Nylon is an excellent way to attach nucleic acids. By exposing a nylon membrane to a UV source, a covalent bond forms between the membrane and the DNA or RNA, which maximizes signal retention after reprobing. Unique impregnation process gives membrane additional strength to prevent cracking, tearing, curling and breaking. This is essential to protocols requiring agressive handling such as colony and plaque lifts and multiple reprobings. Durability saves money by avoiding breakage. All have 0.45 µm pore size.
