General description

Sodium bicarbonate is broadly used as a physiological buffer in cell culture applications. The pKa for bicarbonate <-> carbonic acid reaction is 6.4 The pKa for bicarbonate <-> carbonate reaction is 10.3. Sodum bicarbonate has two pKas, 6.4 and 10.3. It is broadly used as an physiological buffer in in vitro applications.

Application

Sodium bicarbonate has been used:
  • as a component of bovine embryo culture system during in vitro maturation, fertilization, and culture (IVMFC)
  • as a component of a 1:1 mixture of Dulbecco′s modified Eagle′s medium and Ham′s nutrient mixture F-12 during the culture of bovine microvascular endothelial cells
  • as a component of ITS (insulin transferrin and selenite) medium used during the isolation of dopamine neurons from human embryonic stem cells
  • as a component of medium used for cell culture of human embryonic kidney cells
  • as a component of Beltsville thawing solution used for the dilution of semen

Nonylphenols (NP) are ubiquitous substances that have been detected in highly diverse foodstuff. As breakdown products of nonylphenol ethoxylates, NP could end up in the aquatic environment. This article presents a rapid method for NP detection in surface water by planar solid phase extraction – planar yeast estrogen screen (pSPE-pYES).
