Western blot materials - sealed plastic (Apr/08/2010 )

Hello all,

Our lab needs to reorder a new roll of plastic film that is used to seal off the blot for use in primary antibody incubation and exposure. It comes on a very large roll and we cut off just what we need. Unfortunately the roll we just finished off has been around for so long that nobody has any idea of where it was purchased from or exactly what it is.

Does any of this sound familiar? Can somebody recommend a supplier or at the very least an identification of this material so that I can resupply the lab?

Much appreciated,
Lowly Graduate Student


We order from Ampac flexibles. It is tubular roll stock 9.5'' X 125''.

Hope this helps.


And would anyone recommend a few reliable seal-a-meal sealers please?
