Description

Dimethyl sulfoxide is a water miscible solvent that has wide applications in cell biology. It acts as a cryoprotective agent in a variety of cells and tissues allowing prolonged storage at subzero temperatures. DMSO has a very strong affinity for water; on exposure to air, pure DMSO is rapidly diluted.

DMSO has enhanced penetration into other substances across biologic membranes; free radical scavenging; effects on coagulation; anticholinesterase activity; and DMSO-induced histamine release by mast cells.

Not for human therapeutic use or for medicinal purposes. For research applications only.

USE
Dimethyl Sulfoxide (DMSO) is a highly polar organic solvent with many applications in chemical and biological research. DMSO can uniquely provide solubility to certain very polar small molecules, such as simple biomolecules with multiple protic functional groups. It can also be used as an oxidation reagent in certain transformations. The yield of PCR processes is amplified with DMSO as a co-solvent, helping to inhibit the formation of secondary structures from DNA fragments. In addition, the solvent has reported uses in the prevention of ice crystal formation during cryopreservation. Ice crystal formation damages cells and tissues and normally results in their death. DMSO is an excellent option for cryopreservation because it is able to penetrate cells and tissues easily, preventing ice formation within the cell and it has low toxicity.
Handling
Avoid contact with skin, eyes or clothing. Use personal protective equipment as required. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse. Do not breathe dust/fume/gas/mist/vapors/spray. Do not eat, drink or smoke when using this product. Use with local exhaust ventilation. All equipment used when handling the product must be grounded. Keep away from heat/sparks/open flames/hot surfaces. Take necessary action to avoid static electricity discharge (which might cause ignition of organic vapors).
