GE Whatman Pure Cellulose Blotting Papers is the world’s most widely used blotting paper. This acceptance and usage reflect the high quality, purity and consistency that needed by researchers doing Southern, Northern, and Western transfers. GE Whatman Pure Cellulose Blotting Papers are now available in the most widely used sizes. A medium thickness paper (0.34 mm) is used extensively in electrophoresis for lifting of sequencing gels.
GB003 is a general purpose blotting paper (0.8 mm) made from pure raw materials with a high absorbency used as a membrane gel support. A thick paper is recommended for the lysis/denaturation of colony or plaque lifts and Western blots.
GB005 is a thick (1.5 mm) highly absorbent paper recommended for applications where fewer layers of blotting paper must still ensure a high capacity. This is recommended for semi-dry blotting of proteins.
These products are made of pure cellulose produced entirely from the highest quality cotton linters with no additives of any kind. This ensures that no contamination will occur during the transfer steps. They are manufactured and tested specifically for chromatographic and blotting techniques. This ensures the wicking capability and uniformity of capillary action which are important to obtain clean and even transfers during blotting.
GE Whatman Pure Cellulose Blotting Papers are considered the industry standard for blotting procedures. It comes in convenient sizes available in sheets precisely cut to the most popular gel and transfer membrane sizes. Allows ‘out-of-the-box’ usage and eliminates sheet-to-sheet variations.
