One can always buy ready-made glycine 1.9 or whatever from chemical
suppliers. I use glycine 1.5-2.5 in BIAcore experiments and buy the buffers
from BIAcore, though it is quite expensive (but !guaranteed quality! :-))
... Still wonder how THEY measure pH1.9. Guess they might be using
precalculated volumes and quantities instead.
