Application

Magnesium chloride hexahydrate has been used:
  • in the extraction buffer preparation for determining the enzymatic activity of ADP-glucose pyrophosphorylase (AGPase) and α-amylase
  • in neurobasal culture medium for viability test and in phosphate buffer saline (PBS) for electrophysiological test
  • in the preparation of brine solution
  • in the preparation of the adenosine triphosphate (ATP) –MgCl2 (magnesium chloride)solution
