0.5M EDTA (pH 8.0)

High Quality Molecular Biology Grade Buffer for a Reliable & Convenient use in a wide range of Applications

Ethylene-diamine-tetra acetic acid (EDTA) is a high quality and convenient solution that chelates a variety of polyvalent cations such as Ca2+ and Mg 2+. EDTA is usually used as an inactivator of metal-dependent enzymes, preventing damage to DNA and RNA.

In cell cultures, it is used to avoid clumping of cells in liquid suspensions, as EDTA binds to calcium and prevents joining of cadherins between cells.

  • Anticoagulant for blood samples and its storage.
  • Abduct the metal required to metal-dependent enzyme, inactivating the reactions.
  • Avoid junctions between cells by cadherins, usually used to cell culture procedures.
  • Used in TAE and TBE buffers because it inhibits metal-dependent nucleases by chelating the divalent cations (Ca2+ Mg2+), protecting the DNA from nucleases during the run.
  • Added to TE buffer, used to solubilize DNA and RNA, inactivating nucleases by binding to metals cations required by these enzymes.
