Potassium acetate is generally used in laboratory routines. It can be used as a salt for ethanol precipitation of DNA and in molecular biology applications, potassium acetate precipitates sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) and SDS-bound proteins to allow their removal from DNA.
Medicago’s Potassium Acetate Reagent is ≥ 99% pure and supplied as pre-weighed powder in sealed pouches, giving 1000 ml of 3 M or 5 M potassium acetate when dissolved in deionized water.
- Formulated from analytical grade reagent
- Protected from contamination
- Exactly pre-weighed in pouches
- Dissolve and go for greater convenience
- Consistency from lot to lot
Directions for use
Empty one pouch of the potassium acetate reagent in a laboratory flask or beaker placed on a magnetic stirrer. Add 200 ml to 300 ml of deionized water and stir the solution for a few minutes. Adjust the volume up to 1000 ml, stir until full dissolution and the solution is ready to use.
