HEPES


HEPES
(= 4-(2-hydroxyethyl) -1-piperazine-ethane-sulphonic acid)
Very commonly used buffer for tissue culture medium. Its pKa of 7.5 makes it ideal for most cell culture work. Since related compounds are molluscicides it may be unsuitable for some invertebrate cultures. One of the series of zwitterionic buffers described by Good.
