Tris-Buffered Saline

Tris-Buffered Saline (abbreviated TBS) is a buffer used in some biochemical techniques to maintain the pH.

Contents of TBS

  • 20 mM Tris
  • 137 mM NaCl

Adjust pH with HCl to pH 7.6 [1]

Note that concentration of Tris and NaCl as well as the pH can vary, and the resulting solution would still be referred to as "TBS".
