General description

Our SAFC® portfolio of high-quality raw materials for use in biopharmaceutical processing withstands strict quality control procedures plus the documentation and expertise to help our customers meet requirements as defined by the M-Clarity Program.

M-Clarity Program

Buffer quality is vital for the success of biopharmaceutical processes, because buffers are indispensable in nearly every production step.

Our broad portfolio of buffer materials manufactured under appropriate controls is tailored to your needs. Ranging from non-GMP grades for low-risk application, to IPEC-PQG GMP for higher-risk applications, we have products covering all your manufacturing needs.


Buffer component for separation of low molecular weight peptides.
Tricine is a biological buffer often referred to as a “Good′s” buffer. The pKa of Tricine is 8.1 which makes Tricine is a good candidate for biological applications that require pH control above physiological. Tricine is considered to be non-toxic to culture cell lines, highly water soluble and provides high-solution clarity.

Tricine can be used in a wide array of biological applications including as a component in media formulations. Specific applications include buffers for electrophoresis, protein purification and diagnostic reagent production.

Electrophoretic separations of proteins are widely used in proteomic analyses, and rely heavily on SDS electrophoresis. This mode of separation is almost exclusively used when a single dimension separation is performed, and generally represents the second dimension of two-dimensional separations.
