34090-X-Ray-Film-230

Thermo Scientific CL-XPosure Film is an economically priced clear-blue X-ray film especially for detection and documentation of ECL-based Western blots and other chemiluminescent protein or nucleic acid assay methods.

CL-XPosure Film is an excellent phototgraphic film for use with enhanced chemiluminescence (ECL) substrates for horseradish peroxidase (HRP) or alkaline phosphatase (AP). Convenient sizes are offered for protein Western blotting, standard film cassettes and film developing equipment. The autoradiography film also works well for chemiluminescent or isotopic DNA and RNA methods, including Southern and Northern blotting and gel-shift assays (EMSA). The quality and price of this film make it the smart choice for life science research applications.

Highlights

  • High performance – just as sensitive as other commercially available autoradiography films
  • Affordable – costs up to 75% less than other brands of comparable quality X-ray film
  • Convenient – available in five sheet sizes in packages containing 50 or 100 non-interleaved sheets
  • Perfect match – validated for use with Thermo Scientific SuperSignal Chemiluminescent Substrates and Thermo Scientific Pierce ECL Chemiluminescent Substrate
