Description

ZwiterionicN-substituted Aminosulfonic Acid Buffer useful in cell culture media formulations. This buffer is capable of forming radicals and is therefore not suitable for redox reactions.

Applications

• used in isoelectric focusing applications

• as a buffer in the quantitative and selective measurement of antigen-antibody reactions

• not recommended for use with the Folin-Ciocalteu protein assay

Specifications

• Heavy Metals (as Pb): ≤ 0.001 %
• Iron (Fe): ≤ 0.0005 %
• Loss on Drying: ≤ 1.0 %
• pH (5% in water): 5.0 - 6.5
• pKa @ 20°C: 7.35 - 7.70
• Residue on Ignition: ≤ 0.1 %
• Sulfate: ≤ 0.05 %
• UV Absorbance (1M@260nm): ≤ 0.05
• UV Absorbance (1M@280nm): ≤ 0.05

USE
HEPES (4-(2-Hydroxyethyl)piperazine-1-ethane-sulfonic acid) has been described as one of the best all-purpose buffers available for use in biological research. The molecule is zwitterionic at most biological pHs and is most effective as a buffer at pH 6.0 to 8.5. May be used in isoelectric focusing applications and as a buffer in the quantitative and selective measurement of antigen-antibody reactions. HEPES is reportedly superior to NaHCO3 in controlling pH in tissue and organ culture. Not recommended for use with the Folin-Ciocalteu protein assay.
