MOPS, Free Acid - GMP Buffer

BIO PHARMA GRADE | MP4220 | CAS#: 1132-61-2

INTENDED FOR USE IN PHARMACEUTICAL GMP PROCESSES

Product-image

MOPS is a zwitterionic buffer used as a running buffer for
denaturing gel electrophoresis and as a buffering agent
in many biological and biochemical applications. MOPS
interferes with the Folin protein assay and partially
decomposes when autoclaved in the presence of
glucose. MOPS can be used as a Good’s buffer
because it has low UV absorptivity, minimal
reactivity, stable pH and is soluble in water.


These are general specifications. BioSpectra will customize our products to meet your quality based requirements.
