Glycerol – 1 L

  • $64.94 Model Number IB15762

CAS# 56-81-5

  • Used in preparation of polyacrylamide gels for electrophoresis
  • For sample preparation to increase sample density.
  • Used in sample preparation to prevent freezing.

IBI glycerol is ideal for both sample preparation and preparation of polyacrylamide gels for electrophoresis. A concentration measuring 5% - 10% glycerol increases the density of a sample so that the sample layers the bottom of the gel well. Glycerol is also used to aid in casting gradient gels and as a protein stabilizer and storage buffer component.

Available in 500ml and 1 liter sizes.

Packaged in a poly bottle.

Molecular Biology grade.
