Standard Grade BSA 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.
BSA is obtained by a proprietary Heat-Shock method, designed to prevent the excessive use of denaturing organic solvents. It undergoes a thermal inactivation during 3 hours at 65 °C in order to inactivate potential viruses. Lyophilized BSA has been 0.2 μm filtered prior to being freeze-dried.
Bovine plasma used for the manufacture of this product is collected from French healthy cattle declared free from BSE disease in its clinical forms. It is sourced in EU-approved French slaughterhouses.
