How to choose the right biological buffer for your experiment

Release time:


A biological buffer is an essential solution that helps maintain a stable pH level in a variety of biological experiments. In these biological experiments, the success of the experiment often depends on finding and using the correct buffers. If the buffer is not selected correctly, it is very likely that the experiment will fail. In order to avoid such a situation, the editor has summarized several key points for choosing biological buffers here, let's learn together.

1. Select the appropriate pH value

Before choosing a buffer that is suitable for your own experimental pH value, you must first determine the pH range of your own experiment, because ensuring that the pH value environment does not change in the experiment has an important relationship with the buffer pH range of the selected buffer.

2. Water solubility of buffers

Many experiments require the use of buffers that are highly soluble in water, and water solubility is also important because most biological systems use water to dissolve the solvent.

3. Ionic strength

In biological systems, serious complications can arise from high ionic strength in buffers, so choose buffers whose ionic strength does not affect the experiment.

4. No permeability to cell membrane

The buffer should not pass through any cell membranes, and if the permeable membrane buffer accumulates inside the cell, it will alter the cellular nature. This has the potential to affect the results of the experiment.

5. Choose a reliable product manufacturer

There may be some differences in the purity of biological buffers provided by different manufacturers, so it is necessary to choose a supplier with good product quality.

Hubei Xindesheng Material Technology Co., Ltd. is a manufacturer of biological buffers. At present, there are many types of biological buffers, dozens of which can meet one-stop shopping. If you need to buy, please come to consult and buy!
