Product nameGOLD BSA removal kit
Our GOLD BSA removal kit (ab204912) is a simple one-step, 10 minute method that effectively separates BSA from the antibody. If necessary, the antibody may then be transferred to a buffer more suited to GOLD conjugation. The GOLD BSA removal kit can be used on any antibody sub-type and species. Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) is often added as a stabilizer to purified antibodies. However, the presence of BSA is not suitable for all antibody applications. For example, during antibody labelling reactions, BSA in the antibody formulation directly competes with the antibody, greatly reducing the conjugation efficiency. It is therefore essential to remove BSA prior to antibody labelling techniques. Common commercial BSA removal techniques can involve many laborious steps.
Antibodies processed using the GOLD BSA removal kit are fully compatible with our GOLD conjugation kits. To remove BSA from antibodies prior to conjugation with our other conjugation kits, we recommend using our BSA removal kit ab173231.
