Preparing Stock Solutions
The following data is based on the product molecular weight 265.22. 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||3.77 mL||18.85 mL||37.7 mL|
|5 mM||0.75 mL||3.77 mL||7.54 mL|
|10 mM||0.38 mL||1.89 mL||3.77 mL|
|50 mM||0.08 mL||0.38 mL||0.75 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.

Programmed Cell Death Poster
There are two currently recognized forms of programmed cell death: apoptosis and necroptosis. This poster summarizes the signaling pathways involved in apoptosis, necroptosis and cell survival following death receptor activation, and highlights the influence of the molecular switch, cFLIP, on cell fate.
