Preparing Stock Solutions

The following data is based on the product molecular weight 182.2. Batch specific molecular weights may vary from batch to batch due to the degree of hydration, which will affect the solvent volumes required to prepare stock solutions.

Select a batch to recalculate based on the batch molecular weight:
Concentration / Solvent Volume / Mass 1 mg 5 mg 10 mg
1 mM 5.49 mL 27.44 mL 54.88 mL
5 mM 1.1 mL 5.49 mL 10.98 mL
10 mM 0.55 mL 2.74 mL 5.49 mL
50 mM 0.11 mL 0.55 mL 1.1 mL

ACES buffer is an acetamido buffer that is useful for a pH range of 6.1 – 7.5 and was used for cell culturing.

ACES forms a complex with most common metals and formation constants should be taken into account when using this buffer in a solution containing metal ions. ACES absorbs UV light at 230 nm.
