without Sodium Bicarbonate


HBSS without Ca & Mg can also be useful for diluting cells for counting. While HBSS with Ca & Mg is useful for transporting cells or tissue samples, preparing reagents, suspension cultures, as well as to resolve clumping when clumping is a problem.

Formulations with calcium and magnesium support cell adhesion and are generally used as transport media, or for reagent preparation. Formulations without calcium and magnesium are required for rinsing chelators from the culture before cell dissociation.
