Hi folks,

I just received some cellulose membrane dialysis tubing and it came with
instructions of lengthy preparation, including wash under running water
for several hours to remove glycerin (which would not interfere with my
stuff), treatment with sodium sulfide (which we don't have) and
acidification with sulphuric acid. Is all this really necessary? I
remember just boiling up the membranes in some water plus - I think- EDTA
(not sure whether it was EDTA or why it was added). Anybody using other
ways of preparing cellulose membranes? Sigma technical services do not
have any alternative advise.
