Un buffer o tampón químico, en términos químicos, es un sistema constituido por un ácido débil y su base conjugada, o por una base y su ácido conjugado que tiene capacidad tamponante, es decir, que puede oponerse a grandes cambios de pH (en un margen concreto) en una disolución acuosa. ->https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tampón_químico


En muchas ocasiones escucho que lo llaman simplemente "búfer", pero este término no está recogido por la RAE

El término "tampón" sí pero no con esta acepción.

Yo lo mantendría en inglés y en cursiva

(solución) tampón para muestra


Explanation:
Reactivo tampón para muestra sería la opción más literal. Solución tampón o simplemente tampón (para muestra) sería la expresión habitual equivalente en castellano. También solución amortiguadora para muestra.
