Description

Application

DPBS is a balanced salt solution (BSS) used for the handling and culturing of mammalian cells. DPBS is used to to irrigate, wash, and dilute mammalian cells. Phosphate buffering maintains the pH in the physiological range. Calcium and magnesium facilitate cell binding and clumping. DPBS without these ions can be used to wash and rinse suspended cells.

Dulbecco′s Phosphate Buffered Saline has been used for the dilution of fresh red blood cells to study the trapping of red blood cell aggregate. It has also been used to wash the wells of microtiter plate.

What is a Salt Toxicity Test?
The Cell Culture assay is called a Salt Toxicity Test (previously called Cell Culture Salt Testing).A more complete description is below:Cells are harvested and counted. They are resuspended in DPBS and incubated at 37°C, 5% CO2 for 1 hour. The cells are counted and %viability determined. The cells are then cultured for an additional 7 hours (total of 8 hours). The cells are counted again and the % viability determined. The viability at 1 hr has to be >95% of the original viability. The viability at 8 hrs must be >75% of the original viability.
