Borate buffered saline (abbreviated BBS) is a buffer used in some biochemical techniques to maintain the pH within a relatively narrow range. Borate buffers have an alkaline buffering capacity in the 8–10 range. This buffer with 10 mM Sodium borate.
BBS has many uses because it is isotonic and has a strong bactericidal effect. It can be used to dilute substances and in coating procedures. Additives such as Tween 20 and milk powder can be used to add function as washing buffer or blocking buffer.
