General description

Potassium phosphate is widely used in buffers to prepare biological samples and examine biological interactions.

Application

Potassium phosphate monobasic has been used:
  • to prepare the working luminol solution to study the prooxidant activity in the chemiluminescent system luminol–H2O2
  • in phosphate buffer saline (PBS) to culture embryonic stem cells (ESCs) and generate embryoid bodies
  • in PBS to prepare polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) substrate
