Description

The role of a balanced salt solution in cell culture is multifaceted and can be divided into four principal functions:

  • Serves as an irrigating, transporting and diluting fluid while maintaining intra- and extracellular osmotic balance
  • ovides cells with water and certain bulk inorganic ions essential for normal cell metabolism
  • Combined with a carbohydrate, such as glucose, provides the principal energy source for cell metabolism
  • Provides a buffering system to maintain the medium within the physiological pH range (7.2 to 7.6)
