Our Isopropyl Alcohol, ACS USP/NF Reagent Grade, is a chemical grade of highest purity and meets or exceeds purity standards set by the American Chemical Society (ACS) and meets essential lab requirements.
The high purity makes it a good choice for applications that require a clean and controlled environment. This is because impurities in lower-grade Isopropyl Alcohol can leave residue or cause contamination, potentially affecting the performance of electronic components, laboratory equipment, and precision instruments.
Uses For Reagent Grade Isopropyl Alcohol Include...
- Cleaning lab equipment: ACS grade Isopropyl Alcohol is commonly used to clean laboratory glassware, instruments, and surfaces. Its high purity level ensures that no contaminants or residues are left behind after cleaning, making it ideal for maintaining a sterile lab environment.
- Precipitating proteins out of solution: When mixed with a protein solution, Isopropyl Alcohol causes the proteins to clump together, making it easier to extract the proteins out of the solution.
- Tissue processing: Isopropyl Alcohol is commonly used in histology and pathology labs to process tissue samples. It is used to dehydrate tissues before embedding them in paraffin wax for sectioning and staining.
- Chromatography: Very pure Isopropyl Alcohol is used as a solvent in certain types of chromatography, such as thin-layer chromatography and paper chromatography. Its high purity level ensures that there are no contaminants interfering with the separation of the sample components.
Isopropyl Alcohol is colorless with a strong not unpleasant odor. It is highly flammable with a very wide combustible range. It should be kept away from heat and open flame.
Caution: Isopropyl Alcohol is flammable and a dangerous fire risk.
