High Monomer - Unlocking The Black Box

Minor differences in BSA lots, grades, and manufacturers are not captured in the product specifications or certificates of analysis. These often overlooked minor variances in fatty acid profile, endotoxin contamination, purity, protein monomeric abundance, etc. can dramatically affect BSA’s performance in an application.  To read the full white paper, click here

BSA Color - Does Country of Origin Affect BSA Color?

By combining the objective metrics of color science with a systematic analysis of lots and grades it is possible to understand lot-to-lot variability and product similarity in a quantifiable way. To this end Proliant Biologicals has undertaken a study to better understand the range and variability of our BSA product lines using colorimetry.  To read the full white paper, click here

Dissolving BSA Into Solution

Dissolving freeze-dried Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) powders can sometimes be complicated. BSA is a highly soluble protein due to its strong negative charge and affinity for water, but getting the powder into solution quickly, easily, and with minimal foaming is dependent on a number of factors. We have compiled some information and a list of common questions in this white paper.  To read the full white paper, click here

Closed Loop - How Clean Is Your BSA?

BSA is used in a variety of applications, including diagnostics, veterinary medical products, vaccine
manufacturing, mammalian cell growth for biopharmaceutical production, and topical and ex vivo medical device applications. The impact of BSA on the performance of these systems is often overlooked and is identified as a possible root cause of variability only after extensive testing and elimination of other system components.
