Manufacturer: Thermo Scientific™ PI37520
Thermo Scientific™ Blocker BSA Blocking Buffers are ready-to-use, 10X PBS or TBS solutions of bovine serum albumin protein for blocking steps in Western blotting, ELISA, immunohistochemistry and nucleic acid detection methods.These blocking buffers are 10% (w/v) solutions of high-quality BSA that are useful for saturating excess protein-binding sites on membranes and microplates in immunoassays. Blocker BSA Buffers are most frequently diluted 10-fold (to 1% BSA) for initial testing, but other buffer concentrations can be beneficial for specific systems. Blocker BSA is usually more effective than nonfat milk blocking buffers for biotin-avidin systems because it contains a single purified protein that is devoid endogenous biotin.
Purified protein – 10% solutions of high-quality bovine serum albumin; a single purified protein provides fewer chances of cross-reaction with assay components than serum or milk solutions
Convenient – concentrated formulation saves storage space and can be diluted easily to obtain optimal blocking results for specific applications
Easy to use – no waiting for powder to dissolve with this ready-to-dilute liquid concentrate
Flexible – available in PBS and TBS formulations to suit a variety of applications
