Used to formulate CAPS buffer, a zwitterionic buffer useful in the range of pH 7.9-11.1. CAPS buffer is widely used in Western and immunoblotting experiments as well as protein sequencing and identification. Used in the electro transfer of proteins to PVDF (sc-3723) or nitrocellulose membranes (sc-3718, sc-3724). The high pH of this buffer makes it useful for the transfer of proteins with a pI>8.5. and minimal reactivity with enzymes or proteins, minimal salt effects.
Highly water soluble (100 g/L) at 20°C, and methanol (1%).
Store away from oxidizing agents. Keep the container tightly sealed and store in cool, dry condition in well ventilated place.
