  • Materials: useful buffer formulas and specific information on commonly used reagents, such as LB broth, ampicillin, restriction enzymes, etc.


Bromo-Blue/X-cyanol Loading Buffer, 10X

Formula: [30% glycerol; 12.5 mg/mL bromophenol blue; 12.5 mg/mL xylene cyanol]
Volume: 20 mL

  • 50% glycerol, 12 mL
  • Bromophenol blue, 250 mg
  • Xylene cyanol, 250 mg

Bring up to total volume with dH2O.

LB Broth (Lennox)

Volume: 1 L

  • Caesin tryptone, 10 g
  • Yeast extract, 5 g
  • NaCl, 5 g
  • 1 N NaOH, 1 mL

Dissolve in 1000 mL dH2O. Autoclave to sterilize. Cool to room temperature before adding antibiotics. Shortcut: Use 25 g Acros LB Broth, Lennox (BP9722-500) granules instead of caesin tryptone, yeast extract, and NaCl.
