Cell Research
IWP-2 is prepared in DMSO and stored, and then diluted with appropriate medium before use[2]. The human RCC cell lines 786O and Caki-2 (5×103) are seeded into 96-well plates. Cell viability is estimated by MST assay after Caki-2 acells are incubated with ncreasing concentrations of LEF together with 20 μM IWP-2 for 48 h.After treatment, 10 μL MTS is added into each well for 2 h incubation. The absorbance is measured using a model ELX800 Micro Plate Reader at 490 nm. For colony formation assay, Caki-2 cells are trypsinized to single cell suspensions and seeded into fresh 6-well plates at 1000 cells/well. Then cells are incubated with LEF at depicted concentrations for 7 days. Colonies are fixed with absolute methanol for 15 min and then stained with 0.1% crystal violet for 20 min. After washing with PBS three times, the colonies with a diameter over 2 mm are visualized by a digital camera[2].

Molarity Calculator allows you to calculate the

  • Mass of a compound required to prepare a solution of known volume and concentration
  • Volume of solution required to dissolve a compound of known mass to a desired concentration
  • Concentration of a solution resulting from a known mass of compound in a specific volume
See Example

An example of a molarity calculation using the molarity calculator
What is the mass of compound required to make a 10 mM stock solution in 10 ml of water given that the molecular weight of the compound is 197.13 g/mol?
Enter 197.13 into the Molecular Weight (MW) box
Enter 10 into the Concentration box and select the correct unit (millimolar)
Enter 10 into the Volume box and select the correct unit (milliliter)
Press calculate
The answer of 19.713 mg appears in the Mass box


Calculator the dilution required to prepare a stock solution

Calculate the dilution required to prepare a stock solution
The dilution calculator is a useful tool which allows you to calculate how to dilute a stock solution of known concentration. Enter C1, C2 & V2 to calculate V1.

See Example

An example of a dilution calculation using the Tocris dilution calculator
What volume of a given 10 mM stock solution is required to make 20ml of a 50 μM solution?
Using the equation C1V1 = C2V2, where C1=10 mM, C2=50 μM, V2=20 ml and V1 is the unknown:
Enter 10 into the Concentration (start) box and select the correct unit (millimolar)
Enter 50 into the Concentration (final) box and select the correct unit (micromolar)
Enter 20 into the Volume (final) box and select the correct unit (milliliter)
Press calculate
The answer of 100 microliter (0.1 ml) appears in the Volume (start) box

Definitions of molecular mass, molecular weight, molar mass and molar weight:
Molecular mass (molecular weight) is the mass of one molecule of a substance and is expressed n the unified atomic mass units (u). (1 u is equal to 1/12 the mass of one atom of carbon-12)
Molar mass (molar weight) is the mass of one mole of a substance and is expressed in g/mol.
