General description

SSC Buffer 20x Powder is a standard reagent in Southern and Northern blotting procedures. This concentrated powder should be reconstituted in molecular biology grade water to the indicated final volume before use (final solution is a 20x). The 20x concentrate can be used straight or diluted to make SSC working solutions with concentrations as low as 0.5x.

Application

Saline-sodium citrate (SSC) Buffer has been used as a washing buffer in microarray technique.[1] It has also been used as a constituent of fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) buffer.[2]
Suitable for:
  • Preparing nucleic acids for hybridization
  • Hybridization buffer for Northern and Southern blots
  • Washing buffer for Northern and Southern blots

Features and Benefits

  • Multi-purpose use in hybridizations
  • Easily reconstituted and diluted to any concentration needed

Components

Final SSC Buffer 20x Concentrate contains 0.3 M sodium citrate in 3M NaCl.
