[Histonet] Potassium phosphate or Sodium phosphate?

The buffer action resides in the phosphate molecule acting as anion (negatively charged). Either sodium or potassium act as cations (+ charge, of equal charge) and are similar in reaction, so there are no theoretical advantages of one (K) over the other (Na).

  Hi there,

Does anyone know advantages and disadvantages of using potassium
phosphate buffer instead of sodium phosphate buffer on the rinsing of IHQ

Let me explain... we used to use sodium phosphate mono and dibasic
with NaCL, now we are using potassium phosphate mono and sodium phosphate
dibasic with NaCL..
