Preparing Buffers

Stock Solutions

  1. Prepare stock solutions of buffer components (typically 1 M)
  2. Rinse clean storage bottle and filter flask an extra time
    • Use type I, 18 MΩ purified water
    • Drain and use your best aseptic technique from this point on
  3. Filter stock solutions through 0.2 μm filter
  4. Store in bottle for future use
    • Keep the bottle closed as much as possible
    • Always wear gloves and use clean instruments for removing aliquots
    • This will extend the life of your stock solution before bacteria begin to grow in it
