General description

Albumin is the most abundant plasma protein in humans. It accounts for ∼60% of the total serum protein. Albumin plays important physiological roles, including maintenance of colloid osmotic pressure and binding of key substances such as long-chain fatty acids, bile acids, bilirubin, hematin, calcium, and magnesium. It has antioxidant and anticoagulant effects, acts as a carrier for nutritional factors and drugs, and is an effective plasma pH buffer. Serum albumin is a reliable prognostic indicator for morbidity and mortality, liver disease, nephritic syndrome, malnutrition, and protein-losing enteropathies. High levels are associated with dehydration.

Features and Benefits

Compatible with high-throughput handling systems. Can be adapted for use with cuvettes.

Suitability

Suitable for the detection of hemoglobin in serum, plasma, urine, and other biological samples.

Principle

The BCG (Bromocresol Green) albumin assay kit is designed to measure albumin directly without any pretreatment of samples. The optimized formulation substantially reduces interference by other substances (lipids/other proteins) in the raw samples. It may also be used to measure effects of drugs and other compounds on albumin metabolism. The procedure involves addition of a single working reagent and a 5 minute incubation. The optimized formulation has greatly enhanced reagent and signal stability. The kit utilizes bromocresol green, which forms a colored complex specifically with albumin. The intensity of the color, measured at 620 nm, is directly proportional to the albumin concentration in the sample.
