What is HHBS typically used for?


Hank's Balanced Salt Solution with 20 mM Hepes buffer (HHBS) is used for a variety of cell culture applications, such as washing cells, transporting cells or tissue samples, diluting cells for counting, and preparing reagents. Formulations with calcium and magnesium are generally used as transport media, or for reagent preparation in ion channel assays such as calcium channel assays and membrane potential assays.
