The pH of a 1% solution is 2.0-2.8. You may need to adjust the pH of the media with NaOH. Or, prior to addition to the media, you can initially dilute the NAC with PBS, and then add it to the culture media.
Aqueous solutions of cysteine oxidize to cystine on contact with air at neutral or alkaline pH. We recommend making aqueous solutions fresh. NAC is relatively stable in acid. Solutions in acid are stable and can be stored at -20 °C.
