Phosphate buffered saline (PBS) is a buffer solution containing sodium chloride, sodium phosphate, and potassium phosphate.  PBS helps to maintain a constant pH and is isotonic and non-toxic to cells.  For this reason, PBS 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.

PBS is formulated without calcium and magnesium.
