Product Description

Tris buffered saline (TBS) solution for use as the blocking buffer diluent during fluorescent western blotting. Tween 20® detergent cannot be present in the blocking buffer because it can auto-fluoresce and increase non-specific background. After the blocking step, Tween 20® can be re-introduced to subsequent diluent buffers. Chemliluminescent western blotting does not require Tween 20® omission during blocking. Product is shipped and stored at room temperature.

1X Formulation: 137 mM Sodium Chloride, 20 mM Tris. Supplied at pH 7.6.

NOTE: This product does not contain Tween 20® detergent.


Product Usage Information

Storage: Store 10X buffer at room temperature. At 10X, this buffer is stable for 24 months. Use within 1 week once it has been diluted to 1X.
