      DescriptionPoly-D-Lysine solution, 1.0 mg/mL
      OverviewPoly-D-Lysine promotes the adhesion of tissues/sections to the culture vessel. The polycationic property of the molecule allows interaction with anionic sites on the tissue/cells promoting effective attachment to the growing surface. The molecular weight of Poly-D-Lysine is >300,000 Da.
      Alternate Names
      • poly lysine
      Product Information
      PresentationLiquid. 20ml in sterile water.
      ApplicationThe Poly-D-Lysine solution promotes the adhesion of tissues/sections to the culture vessel.
      Key Applications
      • Cell Culture
      Application NotesThe level of coating will vary for different species and types of cells. In general final coating concentrations from 3-10μg/cm(2) of surface area will typically supply sufficent coatings for most cell types.

      Surface area of plates: (pi)(Radius squared) in cm(2)

      In partical terms working dilutions of 50μg/mL to 100μg/mL are usually adequate.

      Dilute poly-D-lysine in PBS, water, or 0.1M borate buffer {prepared by adding 1.24 g boric acid and 1.9 g sodium tetraborate in 400 ml water, pH 8.5} to final working concentration.

      Plates or flasks are coated for 3 hours to overnight, and up to 3 days if stored at 4C. Best results are usually with just over night coatings.

      Remove poly-d-lysine solution and rinse with sterile PBS or water 1-2X. Do not scrape the bottom of the coated plates or flasks.

      Use plates immediately or store with PBS for up to 5 days.

      Poly-D-lysine coating methods will vary slightly from laboratory to laboratory, please use the method as a general guide.
