Bovine Serum Albumin


Product Description

Bovine Serum Albumin is often referred to as BSA or Fraction V and is used for a wide range of applications from diagnostic to cell culture and medical device applications.  BSA is a high purity Fraction V protein derived from the plasma of USDA-inspected healthy animals from abattoirs located in the United States.  The material is initially fractionated by a modified Cohn procedure – a proprietary heat-shock method - and is further isolated from other plasma proteins and lipids by extensive membrane dialysis and filtration.  

Product Availability

BSA is available in 4 different grades, depending on the intended use/application:

Standard Grade pH 7.0 is the ideal choice for most diagnostic and research applications including Protease-sensitive Immunoassays such as RIA, EIA, Fluorescent and Chemiluminescent assays;  as a protein standard, diluent;  as a protein, conjugate or enzyme stabilizer;  for hybridization;  in selected Cell Culture applications. Code: BSA-68011 :

Standard Grade pH 5.2 is the ideal choice for most diagnostic and research applications including Protease-sensitive Immunoassays such as RIA, EIA, Fluorescent and Chemiluminescent assays;  as a protein standard, diluent;  as a protein, conjugate or enzyme stabilizer;  for hybridization;  in Insulin RIA. Code: BSA-68500

Fatty Acid Free BSA is used where the presence of lipids and fatty acids may cause problems, such as hormone and cholesterol assays.  Fatty acid free albumin also provides maximum binding sites for the addition of specific fatty acids for cell culture applications.  Additional applications include Protease-sensitive Immunoassays such as RIA, EIA, Fluorescent and Chemiluminescent assays;  as a protein standard, diluent;  as a protein, conjugate or enzyme stabilizer;  for Hybridization, nucleic acid-based assays;  in fatty acid sensitive cell culture systems. Code: BSA-68700

Cohn Analog Grade is the ideal choice for microbial culture and reproductive biology applications.  These applications include, but are not limited to, Mammalian Cell Culture, Ex-Vivo Medical Devices and as a Protein Base or Filler.  In addition, Cohn Analog can be used in the culture of fastidious microorganisms such as leptospira and B. bergdorferi. Code: BSA-68300
