Product Description

Potassium Iodide

Application Notes

Potassium iodide is often used as a fluorescence quencher. The use of KI to facilitate the sorption of microbial proteins into dextran hydrogels from cell lysates has been described. KI has been applied in the elucidation of the crystal structure of the S100-A3 apoprotein. The use of KI in the isolation of single stranded DNA has been described.
