AMPAC-M: AMPAC-M is a zwitterionic buffer used in column protein purification and gel electrophoresis, as well as in immunoassay kits and in combination with other lower pKa buffers for fermentations. Its fungal resistance helps control opportunistic fungal strains that may be present in fermentation. Its pKa of 9.9 is higher than the physiological range buffers.
AMPAC-M50: AMPAC-M50 is a zwitterionic buffer that does not increase the pH beyond the 7–8 range prior to neutralization. Because it is fungal resistant but water soluble, neutralizing AMPAC-M50 with a water soluble zinc salt will render AMPAC-M50 insoluble and greatly enhance the fungal resistance of coatings.
Our range of proprietary chemistries allows us to make buffers tailored to your unique needs. By controlling chelation, focusing on specific pKa values, or introducing zwitterionic character, we can present a range of scalable chemical solutions. Reach out for more information.
