Applications

Glycerol is used both in sample preparation and gel formation for polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. Glycerol (5-10%) increases the density of a sample so that the sample will layer at the bottom of a gel’s sample well.

Glycerol is also used to aid in casting gradient gels and as a protein stabilizer and storage buffer component. Glycerol acts as a cryoprotectant and prevents formation of ice crystals and prevents cell damage. Glycerol is useful in a variety of applications, glycerol is used as a solvent, plasticizer and humectant.

In polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, glycerol is used in sample preparation and gel formation. At a concentration of 5-10%, glycerol is used to increase the density of a sample so that it will layer at the bottom of a sample well. Additional uses include as an aid in casting gradient gels, a protein stabilizer and storage buffer component.

Notes

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