Bovine Serum albumin, or BSA is a protein fraction obtained from the serum of cows. The albumin protein found in the serum is isolated, purified and is commonly used in protein quantification reactions. Here, BSA is used as a standard protein of known concentration. It is used in assays like ELISA, Lowrys Assay, Bradford Assay, etc. It is also commonly used as a blocker in western blots, ELISA and other immunoblotting techniques. Blocking agents are employed to prevent the non-specific binding of the antibodies to reaction surfaces, such as the ELISA plate or random areas of blots. It also ensures that the antibodies do not bind to the free, but non-specific binding sites. The Bovine Serum Albumin from Genei is provided in a powdered form. Users may dissolve the powder is required concentrations to prepare standards for protein quantification.
