Features lower binding affinities for charged macromolecules
Membranes withstand temperatures to 180°C (356°F)
Cellulose acetate membranes have lower binding affinities for charged macromolecules then cellulose nitrate. Retention is primarily based on precipitate size — use to separate bound and unbound proteins. Membranes also have low-swelling properties making them ideal for use with alcohol based solutions.
