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.
DPBS can be formulated with or without calcium and magnesium.
All buffered salt solutions are shipped via FedEx Ground unless ordered with other media or otherwise requested. Shipping charges vary by weight.
