Lab Reagents: Smart Buffers and Reagents

Biological buffers for the life science laboratory need to meet a wide array of criteria. These include good stability, lack of toxicity, precision in pH, pKa between 6.0 and 8.0 (the region in which most biological reactions occur), minimal salt effects due to the ionic composition of the solution, free of enzymatic and hydrolytic activity and minimal participation in biological reactions. Buffers for molecular biology applications, e.g. Tris-Borate-EDTA and Tris-Acetate-EDTA, need to be free from DNAse and RNAse activity. Medicago's SmartBuffers meet all these criteria. They are manufactured using highly purified, analytical grade chemicals and are extensively quality tested. Manufacturing is done in a controlled clean environment according to GMP procedures. A high level of automation essentially avoids operator intervention and contact with the products. SmartBuffers are supplied as exactly pre-weighed tablets packed in containers or blister packs or as exactly pre-weighed powder mixes packed in sealed aluminium foil pouches. •Pre-mixed powder buffers or tablets with pre-set pH•Analytical grade reagents •Eliminates calculation, formulation and weighing errors •Dissolve-and-go for greater convenience •Stable at room temperature for at least 3 years •Guaranteed reproducibility

Potassium chloride

Potassium chloride, KCl, is generally used in laboratory routines. Its use as a storage buffer for pH electrodes and as a reference solution for conductivity measurements is well established. Medicago’s KCl supplied as an exactly pre-weighed powder in sealed pouches, giving 1000 ml of 1 M or 3 M potassium chloride when dissolved in deionized water.

Product description

Potassium chloride, KCl, is generally used in laboratory routines. Its use as a storage buffer for pH electrodes and as a reference solution for conductivity measurements is well established.

Medicago’s KCl supplied as an exactly pre-weighed powder in sealed pouches, giving 1000 ml of 1 M or 3 M potassium chloride when dissolved in deionized water.

 

Directions for use

Empty one pouch of the KCl reagent in a laboratory flask or beaker placed on a magnetic stirrer. Add 300 ml of deionized water and stir the solution for a few minutes. Adjust the volume up to 1000 ml, stir until full dissolution and the solution is ready to use.

 

Shipping and storage

The KCl reagent is shipped at room temperature. Store the pouches in a dry place at room temperature. Shelf life is three years after production date.
