English term or phrase: buffered
Chemical description of a medication: "acetaminophen, aspirin, and caffeine, buffered." I know that "tampón" is used in chemistry, but it is enough here? Would I say simply "con tampón" or perhaps "tampón de bloqueo"?
Thanks very much.

Spanish translation:con amortiguador (de pH)
Explanation:
o "con tampón" estaría bien también. El contexto dirá si es necesario aclarar que el amortiguador (o tampón es de pH). Mucha suerte. GFS.

Thanks to all. I found some documents that use "tampón" and others that use "amortiguador" and since you were first, you get the Kudos.

Con neutralizador de pH


Explanation:
I've never heard 'tampón' in this case before....
Buffer solutions or buffer chemicals are usually used to reduce acidity. So, when you buy a buffered aspirin, like brand-name 'Bufferin', you are buying an analgesic which will be milder for your stomach. The chemicals used to buffer can be calcium carbonates and others.
In Chemistry, they buffer a solution to turn its pH more alkaline. This practice is common in Analytical Chemistry

Explanation:
El término "buffered" se refiere a una cubierta o capa entérica que recubre la pastilla y retrasa la activación de la droga hasta que ha pasado el tracto digestivo superior y se encuentra en el estómago para evitar que se produzca malestar estomacal por el efecto anticipado de la medicina. Se usa sobre todo en las aspirinas (ácido acetilsalicílico) que se suporne producen hemorragias estomacales peligrosas. Parece un comercial, pero no lo es! ¡Suerte!

Explanation:
El diccionario Stedman de Cs. Médicas da "regular" para traducir "buffer" como verbo, y "buffer" si se usa como sustantivo. Como verbo, lo define como: Agregar buffer a una solución para conferirle de este modo la propiedad de resistir a un cambio del pH cuando recibe una cantidad limitada de ácido o álcali. Como sustantivo, lo define como "mezcla de un ácido y su base conjugada (sal), que cuando está presente en una solución reduce cualquier cambio del pH
Suerte
