Buffer solutions are necessary to keep the correct pH for enzymes in many organisms to work. Its pH changes very little when a small or moderate amount of strong acid or base is added to it and thus it is used to prevent changes in the pH of a solution. Enzymes work only under very precise conditions; if the pH moves outside of a narrow range, the enzymes slow or stop workingand can denature.
In many cases denaturation can permanently disable their catalytic activity. The majority of biological samples that are used in research are made in buffers. Our store offers a wide variety of buffers in order to secure your desired research object. If you need help, please contact our customer support via phone, live chat or email.
