10x: Tris 890mM, Boric acid 890mM, EDTA 20mM, pH 8.3


10x TBE Buffer is a concentrated solution commonly utilized in molecular biology for nucleic acid electrophoresis. Composed of Tris, boric acid, and EDTA, it facilitates DNA and RNA separation in agarose or polyacrylamide gels. The Tris component maintains a stable pH, while boric acid provides conductivity for efficient electrophoresis. EDTA chelates divalent cations, preventing enzymatic degradation of nucleic acids. Typically diluted to a working concentration of 1x before use, 10x TBE buffer is crucial for accurate sizing and analysis of nucleic acid fragments during gel electrophoresis experiments.
