Dulbecco's Phosphate Buffered Saline (DPBS) is a buffer solution containing sodium chloride, sodium phosphate, potassium chloride and potassium phosphate and is used to maintain cell culture media in the physiological pH range of 7.0 to 7.6. DPBS can serve as an irrigating, transporting or diluting fluid while maintaining cell tonicity and viability for a limited period of time. Formulations with calcium and magnesium are generally used as transport media or for reagent preparation.
Hanks' Balanced Salt Solution (HBSS) is a buffer used to maintain a physiological pH for cells maintained in non-CO2 atmospheric conditions. HBSS is used for a variety of cell culture applications, such as washing cells before dissociation, transporting cells or tissue, diluting cells for counting, and preparing reagents. Formulations with calcium and magnesium are generally used as transport media or for reagent preparation.
Lysine-Alanine Sequential (LAS) Copolymer for Superior Axon Growth When used at 50 µg/ml to coat a glass or plastic substrate overnight, followed by a brief rinse with ddH2O and drying, hippocampal neurons extend axons at a rate 2x higher than on poly-d-lysine.
