  • Uniform absorption
  • High intra and inter-lot consistency
  • A wide range of thickness and absorption levels
  • Customized sizing and packaging

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Ahlstrom-Munksjö manufactures, in Europe and in the United States, absorbent papers made of the highest purity cotton linters. These media do not contain an additive of any kind, thus preventing any contamination during the transfer steps.

Our absorbent papers are produced with a wide range of thickness and absorption levels for optimal wicking capabilities, drying and blotting in any application.

Each media is specifically designed to ensure high quality and consistency. Close surveillance in tightly controlled conditions ensures the highest uniformity, consistency, and smoothness of the sheets in all grades. This contributes to clean and even transfers during blotting.

Fields of use include:

  • Chromatography
  • Electrophoresis
  • Northern, Western and Southern Blots
  • Antibiotic discs
  • Seed Germination Testing

PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS

The key characteristics that help us to define the right paper grade are the thickness, the basis weight and the capillary rise (absorption speed). Thicker papers allow separation of higher quantities while lower capillary rise is more suitable for higher resolution.
