Product nameDextran sulfate, anhydroglucose polymer
DescriptionPolymer of anhydroglucose.
Polymer of anhydroglucose routinely used for the selective precipitation of lipoproteins, probe hybridization of membrane-immobilized DNA, the release of DNA from DNA-histone complexes, and the inhibition of RNA binding to ribosomes. Used as an additive in probe hybridization solutions where its presence accelerates the rate of hybridization by 10 fold.

Storage instructionsStore at +4°C. Store under desiccating conditions. The product can be stored for up to 12 months.
Soluble in water to 100 mg/ml
Wherever possible, you should prepare and use solutions on the same day. However, if you need to make up stock solutions in advance, we recommend that you store the solution as aliquots in tightly sealed vials at -20°C. Generally, these will be useable for up to one month. Before use, and prior to opening the vial we recommend that you allow your product to equilibrate to room temperature for at least 1 hour.
Refer to SDS for further information.
