Membranes for Immunofiltration

Nupore immunofiltration membranes are specially useful for making antibody detection tests and also for quantitative detections of proteins.

Types Available

FTCN is cast on cellulose paper. It is very sturdy to handle and the paper makes good contact with the absorbent. Available in sheets and reels of desired size.

Applications :

Membrane Typical applications
Paper cast NC Membrane HIV 1 & 2, HCV
FTCN - 0.45µm & 0.8µm Other Antibody Tests,
  Microbial detection kits


Technical Data

The reaction kinetics of Ag/Ab is governed by the flow rate of the membrane and its pore size. Bigger pore size will show faster flow rate. Membrane with slower flow exhibits higher sensitivity of the assay whereas fast flow membrane will have less nonspecific binding and results in a quicker test.
FTCN – 0.45m is an optimised membrane for visual assays.


What is special about Immunofiltration Membranes ?

As with other membranes used in diagnostic assays, point to point uniformity and reproducible from lot to lot are key requirements. This is particularly important when membrane act as a support for quantitative assay.

Ordering Information

These Membranes are produced in master rolls and can be ordered as sheets/ reels slit to required width
