0.9% NaCl solution in microbiology
Posted 02 February 2010 - 01:44 PM
I have used 0.9% NaCl solution to adjust the density of a bacterial pellet. I have just been told that 0.9% NaCl solution may kill bacteria rapidly even at 4°C. And I really need to keep most of the bacteria alive for at least 4 days in the fridge and then about 3 hours at 25°C.
Does anyone know something about it? If this saline solution is not suitable, does you have any suggestions?

If it kills your bacteria, though I don't think it will), you could try PBS...
