Product Description

Glycerol

Application Notes

Glycerol is used in the concentration and storage of enzymes. Also prevents back-diffusion and protein samples into the buffer. It is an osmotic agent with lubricating and moisturizing properties and has a long list of applications. It is also used to aid in casting gradient gels and as a protein stabilizer and storage buffer component.

Usage Statement

Research Use Only (RUO). Ready for CE IVD labeling of clinical applications.

Key Applications

Storage of enzymes||Substrate||protein purification
