Preparation of stock solutions

Most BIOLOG products are sold in micromol quantities in order to assist customers with the preparation of stock solutions. In contrast to often troublesome calculations regarding molecular weight, salt form, water content and purity percentages, simply add certain volumes of solvent ( mostly water or buffer ) and end up already with stock solutions of defined concentrations.

The following table shows how to dissolve the content of a vial with water or buffer in order to obtain defined stock solutions.

Example: If you add 5 ml of buffer to the content of a 5 µmol vial, you end up with a 1mM solution.

If a typical dilution series (1 mM, 100 µM, 10 µM, 1 µM ...) is prepared, respective final end volumes will be 90% of the starting stock solution. For example: The content of a 10 µmol vial that has been dissolved in 10 ml of water to result in a 1 mM stock solution, yields 9 ml of each concentration level after dilution.
