INSTRUMENTATION

This reagent was designed for use on current laboratory flow cytometers and cell sorters requiring preservative-free sheath solution.

DIRECTIONS FOR RECONSTITUTION AND USE

1. Measure the quantity of Hanks' solution need into a container that will contain 8X the volume dispensed.

2. Measure 7X the volume dispensed of distilled or high purity water into the container and mix.

3. Reagent is ready for use. The pH of the diluted Hanks' Salt Solution is 6.7 plus or minus 0.2. Sodium Bicarbonate can be added to the solution (0.35 g/L). The pH of the solution can be adjusted with 1N HCl or 1N NaOH.

4. When reagent bottle is empty, dispose of it responsibly by recycling.


CAUTION: Since no preservative is added to the sheath solution, bacterial contamination may occur following prolonged standing.
