GoldBio's Reagent Grade, Fatty Acid Free BSA is ideally suited for fatty acid sensitive cell culture systems, such as CHO, Vero and MDCK cells, as well as for the most sensitive diagnostic and research applications. Our BSA is protease free and certified TSE free, manufactured in the United States in a closed loop system from USDA-inspected, healthy animals located in the US.

GoldBio BSA is a highly purified, lyophilized albumin, suitable for Westerns, enzyme systems, protein standards, hybridizations and as a protease-sensitive immunoassays. It is also perfectly suitable as a nutrient in cell culture media, with low interference and backgrounds and is ideal for most standard molecular biology experiments. BSA protein is a single polypeptide chain consisting of ~583 amino acid residues and no carbohydrates and is approximately 66 kDa in size.  Fraction V refers to the fifth fraction of the original Cohn purification of plasma proteins using cold ethanol precipitation and is still commonly used as a name for bovine serum albumin regardless of purification method.

Reagent Grade BSA Applications:

  • Protease-sensitive Immunoassays such as RIA, EIA, Fluorescent and Chemiluminescent
  • Protein Standard, Diluent
  • Protein, Conjugate or Enzyme Stabilizer
  • Hybridization, nucleic acid-based assays Fatty acid sensitive cell culture systems
