Application

Bis Tris Propane is a unique biological buffer also referred to as a “Universal” buffer, which means the buffer capacity covers a wide range. Bis Tris Propane has two pKas of 6.3 and 9.5, which expands the buffering range from 5.0-10.5-making this a versatile buffer for biological systems. Bis Tris Propane is considered to be non-toxic to culture cell lines and provides high-solution clarity.

A review of DNA polymerase techniques lists bis tris propane as a suitable buffer for PCR methods as a universal buffer pH gradient is employed.
