Frequently Asked Questions

Q:

How Do You Handle Hydrochloric Acid? What Can You Not Mix with Hydrochloric Acid?

A:

Hydrochloric acid can be dangerous when combined with hydrogen peroxide.

When handling all biological products, it is a best practice to use industrial hygiene standards and aseptic handling techniques. Hydrochloric Acid is a highly corrosive and irritative substance and can cause severe tissue damage and respiratory constriction.

Q:

How Do You Store and Transport Hydrochloric Acid Solution? What Is the Normal Shelf Life?

A:

Hydrochloric Acid from Biologos (Bio-Chloric) is supplied in gamma-irradiated, sterile PETG or PETE bottles.

Bio-Chloric Solution is shipped ambient by less than truck-load carrier or overnight, as needed.

Hydrochloric acid from Biologos (Bio-Chloric) has a shelf life of two years.

Q:

Can You Use Hydrochloric Acid for Cleaning?

A:

Yes – Hydrochloric acid is used in a variety of industries as a cleaning agent.

Q:

Does Hydrochloric Acid Fully Dissolve in Water?

A:

Hydrochloric acid will completely be ionized when dissolved in water.

Q:

What Is a Substitute for Hydrochloric Acid?

A:

For bone decalcification, acceptable substitutes are EDTA solution and formic acid.

Q:

How Do You Make Hydrochloric Acid Solution?

A:

Hydrochloric acid is an aqueous hydrogen halide solution, produced by dissolving hydrogen chloride in water.

Q:

What’s the pH of Hydrochloric Acid?

A:

~3.0 pH. Standard process for Biologos is that pH is a ‘measure and record’ requirement.

Q:

What Is Hydrochloric Acid Used For?

A:

Hydrochloric acid is commonly used by tissue processing labs for bone decalcification.

Q:

What is Hydrochloric Acid?

A:

Known by the chemical formulation H2O: HCl, Hydrochloric Acid is a chlorine-based acid made of Hydrogen chloride and water. Used as a chemical reagent for a range of laboratory and industrial applications, Hydrochloric Acid (HCI) is a colorless and corrosive chemical.
