Re: trypsin recipe

Martha,

This is what I do:

I make up 0.1% calcium chloride in deionized water, then adjust the pH to
7.8 using 0.1N sodium hydroxide.  Just before use, I preheat this solution
to about 37C, then add 0.1gm of trypsin.  Using a stir bar, I dissolve the
enzyme.  When dissolved, I incubate at 37 for 10 to 15 minutes.
