MES, is often used as a running buffer for resolving very small proteins on bis-tris gels, also used as a biological buffer in plant cell cultures. It is also been used in various protein characterization assays. This sterile solution suitable for cell culture and molecular biology applications. It is also used as a buffering agent in biology and biochemistry.
