Preparing Stock Solutions
The following data is based on the product molecular weight 475.42. Batch specific molecular weights may vary from batch to batch due to solvent of hydration, which will affect the solvent volumes required to prepare stock solutions.
|Concentration / Solvent Volume / Mass||1 mg||5 mg||10 mg|
|1 mM||2.1 mL||10.52 mL||21.03 mL|
|5 mM||0.42 mL||2.1 mL||4.21 mL|
|10 mM||0.21 mL||1.05 mL||2.1 mL|
|50 mM||0.04 mL||0.21 mL||0.42 mL|
The reconstitution calculator allows you to quickly calculate the volume of a reagent to reconstitute your vial. Simply enter the mass of reagent and the target concentration and the calculator will determine the rest.

Cancer Metabolism Poster
Adapted from the 2015 Cancer Product Guide, Edition 3, this poster summarizes the main targets for cancer metabolism researchers. Genetic changes and epigenetic modifications in cancer cells alter the regulation of cellular metabolic pathways. These distinct metabolic circuits could provide viable cancer therapeutic targets.
