TRIS, Molecular Biology Reagent, ≥99.95%, White Crystalline Powder

  • Tris has been useful as buffers in a wide variety of biological systems.
  • Uses include pH control in vitro and in vivo for body fluids and in buffering systems for electrophoresis applications.
  • Tris has been used as a starting material for polymers, oxazolones (with carboxylic acids) and oxazolidines (with aldehydes).
  • Tris does not precipitate calcium salts and is of value in maintaining solubility of manganese salts.
  • It can be used for the direct standardization of a strong acid solution; the equivalence point can be determined either potentiometrically or by use of a suitable indicator such as 3-(4-Dimethylamino-1-naphthylazo)-4-methoxybenzenesulfonic acid.
  • It is an auxiliary material in pharmaceutical science
