Human Serum Albumin Fraction V, lyophilised
Albumins are monomeric proteins found in body fluids and tissues. Human serum albumin (HSA) is the most abundant protein in human blood plasma with a molecular weight of approximately 66.5 kDa.
Composition of human serum albumin
Human serum albumin lyophilised powder is > 98% pure according to agarose gel electrophoresis.
Human Serum Albumin 20% solution is prepared in physiological sodium chloride as a sterile solution.
Application and properties of HSA
Due to the free hydrophobic regions, albumin is used to solubilise lipids and stabilise other proteins such as growth factors in tissue culture applications. Albumin has a low molecular weight, is readily soluble in water (50 mg / ml) and contains an excess of acidic amino acids.
Blocking agent in Western blots or ELISA applications
Serum substitute in serum-free, xeno-free cell culture
Medium component for cryopreservation and stem cell culture
Stabilising protein for pharmaceutical and biotechnological products
Reduces non-specific binding in molecular biological assays
Storage temp.: +2 to +8°C
