Borate, 0.5M buffer soln., pH 8.5


Chemical Properties

Soluble in water 26 g/L (20°C).


Borate buffered saline has been used to determine whether heat-killed, borate-buffered suspensions of Gordonia bronchialis, Rhodococcus coprophilus or Tsukamurella inchonensis can be used to treat canine flea allergy. Borate buffered saline has also been used to investigate the effects of lentivirus mediated siRNA targeting human metastasis suppressor 1 (MTSS1, MIM-B gene) gene on the invasive and metastatic potentials of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) MHCC97H cells. Borate buffered saline has been used to determine the effects of packaging solution osmolality and buffering agent on soft contact lens parameters. BBS has many uses because it is isotonic and has a strong bactericidal effect. It can be used to dilute substances and in coating procedures. Additives such as Tween 20 and milk powder can be used to add function as washing buffer or blocking buffer. Finfs uses in Protein-coating on microtiter plates, Blocking solution in blots together with Casein or BSA.


Store in cool place. Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place.
