    What's the best and basic way of making these buffers??

    I do have a range of stuff here I could use.. yet cannot find anything online

    make the Cleapps universal buffer you then add it to water and vary your pH by adding HCl or more of the universal buffer solution if you go too low it is citric acid boric acid and disodium hydrogen carbonate.

  5. We use the Cleapps recipe for Universal and adjust as necessary.
  6. I use the CLEAPSS Universal recipe with Citric Acid and Disodium Hydrogenphosphate. I make in bulk and then freeze/thaw/refreeze. Saves making fresh each time.
  7. We just buy them in , the whole range ph2- ph10 there very cheap only a few pound's a ltr to much fuss making them up ...:):):)

    Thanks all. I had a look in the book and its made up with items that we do not have which seemed pointless to order them in to make them buffers
  9. We buy them all in and they work well so no point in all the trouble and time to make them all up.We have a whole range from pH4 - 10
  10. You can just buy pH buffer tablets that you buy and make up as and when you need them. Easier to store and lasts ages.
