• Blocking serum

    Blocking serum (36)

    Immunohistochemistry (IHC) experiments often contain one or more blocking steps to reduce background signal and false positives. Blocking with sera or a protein blocking agent is essential to prevent non-specific binding of antibodies to tissue or to Fc receptors. Serum is a common blocking agent as it contains antibodies that bind to non-specific sites. The Blocking sera should be from…
  • Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA)

    Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) (22)

    Bovine Serum Albumin is a globular protein (~66,000 Da) that is used in a wide range of applications from diagnostic to cell culture and medical device applications due to its stability and lack of interference within biological reactions. BSA is also commonly used to determine the quantity of other proteins, by comparing an unknown quantity of protein to known amounts…

    Of all the different types of animal serum available, Foetal Bovine Serum (FBS) is the most widely used basal media supplement for in vitro cell culture. FBS contains very low level of antibodies, which combined with a higher concentration of growth factors (compared with adult or newborn bovine sera). This means that FBS is effective in promoting and sustaining the…
