Dimethylsulfoxide, also known as DMSO, is a polar organic reagent that acts as an exceptional solvent for organic and inorganic chemicals. DMSO is especially useful in the solubilization of peptides, polymerase chain reactions, DNA sequencing, column loading buffers, transformation and transfection protocols, as well as a cryoprotectant in cell freezing media. This DMSO is RNase and DNase free, making it ideal for use in cell culture.
