Technical Data
A1327
Albumin, Human Serum (HSA)
Description:
Albumin is synthesized in the liver and consists of a single polypeptide chain with a molecular weight of 66kD. It is present in all body fluids and is most abundant plasma protein. It acts as a transport protein for long chain fatty acids, prostaglandins, hematin, thyroxin, copper II, cystine and pyridoxal phosphate amongst many other substances that bind more weakly. The average serum concentration of albumin is 42g/L.

Applications:
Suitable for use in ELISA and antigenic applications in immunological protocols. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Total Protein (Biuret): 9.4g/dL

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage, store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
