DMSO (dimethyl sulfoxide) is a highly polar, aprotic organic solvent with many applications in organic chemistry and molecular biology. DMSO is routinely used in

  • polymerase chain reaction (PCR)
  • amplification of cDNA libraries
  • DNA sequencing
  • column-loading buffers for poly(A)+ RNA selection
  • buffers for the transformation of competent E. coli
  • transfection protocols.

Dimethyl sulfoxide has been used-

  • as an oligonucleotide solvent in array spotting[1]
  • as a solvent during miRNA microarray analysis and quantitative real-time PCR (qRT-PCR)
  • for cell lysis during MTT (3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide) assay
  • for the preparation of the stock solution during MMP (mitochondrial membrane potential)cytofluorimetric assessment
  • in the storage of human and animal cell lines and bacteriophage λ as a cryoprotective agent.
To prepare a sterile filtered DMSO solution, it is recommended to use a PTFE or nylon membrane. Cellulose acetate membranes are not recommended.


Supercools easily and remelts slowly at room temperature. Solidified product can be re-liquified by warming to room temperature without detriment to the product.

Features and Benefits
