SOURCE: The raw material used to manufacture this lot was derived exclusively from USDA-regulated abattoirs located in the United States. The animals received ante-mortem and post-mortem inspection under a licensed veterinarian’s supervision and were certified at the time of slaughter as free of infectious or contagious diseases and injurious parasites. PURITY: ≥ 96% by SDS-PAGE analysis MOL. WEIGHT: ~ 66.43 kDa FORM: Amber colored solution ALBUMIN CONTENT: 29-32% pH: 7.0 ± 0.2 APPLICATIONS/ADVANTAGES: • A convenient nutrient concentrate used to formulate media for bacteria such as Leptospira, Rickettsiaceae, Mycobacteria, Treponema, and parasitic protozoans. • Can be used as a nutrient in growth media for the manufacture of veterinary vaccines and in the Treponema pallidum immobilization test. • Can serve as a stock solution for using BSA in immunodiagnostic assays. • Can be used as the standard solution for serological applications. • It is isotonic to human erythrocytes. • Available with and without 0.1% sodium azide.
BioVision’s BSA is prepared by utilizing the Cohn Cold Ethanol Precipitation Process. This process is optimal for preserving the nutrient factors critical to the applications of cell culture, leptospira and microbiological growth. BSA makes up approximately 60% of all proteins in animal serum. It is commonly used in cell culture protocols, particularly when protein supplementation is necessary and the other components of serum are unwanted. It aids in stabilization of enzymes and other proteins to prevent proteolysis and denaturation, especially when the proteins are present in low concentrations. In cell culture its main role is as a carrier of small molecules. Because of its negative charge, BSA binds water, salts, fatty acids, vitamins and hormones, then carries these bound components between tissues and cells. The binding capacity also makes BSA an effective scavenger for removing toxic substances, including pyrogens, from the medium. This 30% serological solution is a sterile, amber colored solution of concentrated bovine serum albumin.
