Phosphate-Buffered Saline Powder (PBS 1x), without Ca & Mg, without Phenol Red
Phosphate-buffered saline powder or PBS powder is a water-based salt solution widely used in cell culture applications, e.g. for maintenance of pH, dilution of substances, or rinsing of cell containers.
Also known as Dulbecco's Phosphate-Buffered Saline (DPBS), PBS is non-toxic and provides cells with water and inorganic ions, which are necessary for cell metabolism. The osmolarity and ion concentrations of PBS solutions are meant to mimic the isotonic milieu of the human body.
This formulation of PBS powder comes without Ca & Mg and without Phenol Red. The concentration of the powdered buffer solution is 1X.
Phosphate-buffered saline powder provides a convenient way to make large volumes of standard 1X Phosphate Buffer for cell culture. We offer dry powdered cell culture media and buffer which are manufactured using the highest quality ingredients. The powder is precisely blended in a clean, controlled, state-of-the-art equipment to eliminate contaminating dust and to control temperature and humidity.
