Product Description
TBE (Tris-Borate-EDTA) buffer, 5X is the most commonly used buffer for DNA and RNA polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and has a pH value of 8.3. TBE is used with non-denaturing or denaturing gels. It is also routinely used for DNA automated sequencing gel and can also be used for agarose gels but is not recommended for preparative gels for recovery of nucleic acids. The borate in TBE buffer is a strong inhibitor for many enzymes. The buffer stocks may also be added to an acrylamide/bis-acrylamide stock solution for making the PAGE gel.

For laboratory use only. Not fit for agricultural, household, clinical use or human consumption.
