VWR Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) is used in many applications as a stabilisation agent. Albumin is used to solubilise lipids, and is also used as a blocking agent in Western blots or ELISA applications. It is commonly used in cell culture protocols mainly for protein supplementation. It can also be added to viral transport media for stabilisation.
- VWR BSA exists in different grades and formats
- Classic BSA Lyophilised: For agarose gel electrophoresis or standards in protein calibration studies
- Protease-free BSA for Immuno-Assay and ELISA applications
- Liquid BSA 30% - sterile for cell culture applications
All bovine proteins are obtained from Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) free countries or are declared BSE-free by the European authorities.
