Description

General description

Deionized. Adenine deaminase inhibitor. Used in DNA stripping during genetic fingerprinting techniques.

Useful as an ionizing solvent. Absorbance (0.5 M): ≤0.08 at 260 nm; ≤0.03 at 280 nm. Adenine deaminase inhibitor. Used in DNA stripping during genetic fingerprinting techniques. Supplied as deionized.

Application

Formamide destabilizes nucleic acid duplexes and may be used, typically, at a concentration of 50%, in hybridization protocols requiring lower hybridization temperatures.

Warning

Toxicity: Carcinogenic / Teratogenic (D)
