Biological Activity

Description 2,2,2-Tribromoethanol (TBE, Tribromoethanol) is an organic compound used to anesthetize mice.
In vivo Tribromoethanol has been proposed as an acceptable anaesthetic in dogs, cats, mice, rats, and gerbils. It possesses a concentration dependent irritant effect. When used at low concentration, it displays good anesthetic effect. A high dose of tribromoethanol is not a suitable anesthetic for major surgery in all mouse strains because of the risk of pathologic changes in the abdominal organs, such as retention of the digestive tract, peritonitis, and fibrinoid adhesion[1][2].

Working concentration: mg/ml;

Method for preparing DMSO master liquid: mg drug pre-dissolved in μL DMSO ( Master liquid concentration mg/mL, Please contact us first if the concentration exceeds the DMSO solubility of the batch of drug. )

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next addμL PEG300, mix and clarify, next addμL Tween 80, mix and clarify, next add μL ddH2O, mix and clarify.

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next add μL Corn oil, mix and clarify.

Note: 1. Please make sure the liquid is clear before adding the next solvent.
2. Be sure to add the solvent(s) in order. You must ensure that the solution obtained, in the previous addition, is a clear solution before proceeding to add the next solvent. Physical methods such
as vortex, ultrasound or hot water bath can be used to aid dissolving.
