HEPES Solution (1M, pH 7.3, Cell Culture Tested) is prepared using high-purity HEPES (free acid) and high-quality NaOH, diluted with cell culture-grade ultrapure water, and sterilized by filtration. These solutions have a concentration of 1M and a pH of 7.3. They are commonly used as buffering agents in cell culture to maintain a stable pH range over an extended period.
HEPES (free acid), also known as 4-(2-Hydroxyethyl)piperazine-1-ethanesulfonic acid, has a molecular formula of C8H18N2O4S and a molecular weight of 238.30. Its CAS number is 7365-45-9. HEPES is a commonly used zwitterionic buffer reagent with an effective buffering range of pH 6.8-8.2 and a pKa value of 7.5 at 25°C.
HEPES Solution (1M, pH 7.3) is widely used in cell culture at a working concentration of 10-25 mM. Compared to bicarbonate buffer systems with lower pKa values, HEPES has a pKa of 7.5 and exhibits good buffering capacity within the pH range of 7.2-7.6. It is suitable for cell culture that requires precise pH conditions and provides excellent buffering capacity when cells are cultured in open systems or when observing cells for an extended period outside a CO2 incubator.
HEPES is often the preferred choice for buffering cell culture systems because it is impermeable to cell membranes, minimally affects various biochemical reactions, and exhibits stability in chemical and enzymatic environments. Additionally, HEPES has very low absorbance of visible and UV light.
HEPES is non-toxic to cells at concentrations of 10-25 mM. However, concentrations above 40 mM may become toxic to certain cells and affect cell growth.
