Recover microorganisms from multiple sample types, including rinse samples from clinical instruments and environmental monitoring samples, by creating a pH-balanced environment with Thermo Scientific™ Phosphate Buffered Saline with Poly 80 (PBST), a buffer solution commonly used in biological research.
The osmolarity and ion concentrations of Phosphate Buffered Saline with Poly 80 (PBST) solution usually match those of the human body (isotonic), creating an environment ideal for maintaining cell viability and the recovery and revitalization of injured or damaged cells. When polysorbate 80 is added, it provides a neutralizing property for disinfectants or cleaning solutions to further allow the recovery of cells.
