Since you say you have few questions, I am assuming that you are quite certain about your composition. PBS stands for "Phosphate buffered saline" so it is NaCl, not KCl. Usually we use Na-salts for the phosphate combination. Potassium phosphate and -biphosphate may be used, but for all practical purposes it is Na- that is preferred since lot of compounds do not go well with K+

Subject: 10X PBS
I have few doubts regarding phosphte buffer saline (PBS). Recently I found
one article related to my work, in that they used PBS ( Nacl/iP ) pH-7.4.
Nacl/iP does it mean, it should contain Na2HP04 and NaH2PO4 and Nacl but
not KCl, am I right?
I have prepared the buffer like this
NaH2PO4 ( 0.038M)
Na2HPO4.2H20 ( 0.162M)
NaCl (1.5 M ) but when i check the pH it was showing 6.4, is it correct?
did I do any mistake....
Could any one please tell me did i do any mistake?
Thank you in advance
