Refractive Index and Total Solids
Our collagen products are used for cell culture, tissue engineering, 3D hydrogels and various assays.
The refractive index of a solution can be used to compare and characterize particular solutions. In our white paper, we test and report the refractive indices of 11 collagen solutions and 6 buffers typically used with collagen products.
A percent solids value was also collected which describes total solid material in solution as a percent of total weight. Collagen samples were tested as acidic solutions along with some commonly used buffers and diluents.
