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
