New Nexterion® products
Two types of nitrocellulose coating are available in the Nexterion® MTP-NC96 microplate format: Nexterion® NC-N for use with non-contact microarray printing systems, and Nexterion® NC-C for use with contact printers. Both types of nitrocellulose membranes are compatible with all detection methods including fluorescent, chemi-luminescent, radiographic, and colorimetric. The nitrocellulose coatings are identical to those used for the standard and multi-pad Nexterion® Slide NC-C/N products.
For information on compatible microplate scanners and detailed instructions for printing into the Nexterion® MTP-(96)NC-C/N plates, please refer to the section on Nexterion® multi-well microplate formats. MTP-NC-C/N96 plates are compatible with automated liquid handling instrumentation and multi-channel pipettors.
Further information about printing and processing the MTP-NC96 plates are available in the FAQ section of the Nexterion® web site.
