Cell Research
The effect of Ribavirin on microglial cell viability is evaluated by the sulforhodamine B (SRB) chemosensitivity assay. Briefly, LPS-stimulated microglial cells are incubated for 48 h in the presence or absence of Ribavirin. Afterward, the cells are fixed in 10% (w/v) trichloroacetic acid for 1 h at 4°C, rinsed in tap water and stained with 0.4% (w/v) SRB in 1% acetic acid (100 μL/well) for 30 min at room temperature (RT). The cells are then rinsed three times in 1% acetic acid to remove the unbound stain. The protein bound stain is extracted with 200 μL 10 mM Tris base (pH 10.5) per well. The optical density is read at 540 nm, with correction at 670 nm. The results are presented as percentage of the control (non-stimulated/untreated microglial cells), that is arbitrarily set to 100%.

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 in 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.
