(Phosphate-buffered Saline) Dissolve 8 g of NaCl, 0.2 g of KCl, 1.44 g of Na2HPO4, and 0.24 g of KH2PO4 in 800 ml of distilled H2O. Adjust the pH to 7.4 with HCl. Add H2O to 1 liter. Dispense the solution into aliquots and sterilize them by autoclaving for 20 minutes at 15 psi (1.05 kg/cm 2) on liquid cycle or by filter sterilization. Store the buffer at room temperature. If necessary, PBS may be supplemented with 1 mM CaCl2 and 0.5 mM MgCl2.
