Application

Calcium chloride dihydrate has been used:
to prepare competent E. coli for transformation(118)
in the preparation of calcium polyphosphate nanospheres and to induce alkaline phosphatase(119)
as a component of renaturation buffer for the zymogram of Staphylococcus aureus crude enzyme extracts(120)

Packaging
