Protein Quantification

Dual-Range™ BCA Protein Assay Kit
The most highly used method for measuring protein concentration.

Dual-Range™ BCA Protein Assay Kit is the most used protein assay method. It based on bicinchoninic acid (BCA) for the colorimetric detection and quantitation of total protein in the 5–2,000 μg/mL concentration range. Like the Lowry method, the assay relies on the reduction of Cu2+ ions by protein. The Cu+ thus formed is detected by conversion into a violet-colored substance by reaction with bicinchoninate. Dual-Range™ BCA Protein Assay Kit is compatible with many detergents but not compatible with reducing agents such as DTT,DTE, and 2-Mercaptoethanol etc.
产品信息

 

 

The BCA protein assay is based on a reduction of Cu2+ to Cu+ by proteins in alkaline solution with a sensitive and specific colorimetric detection of Cu+ by bicinchoninic acid (BCA). Two molecules of BCA chelate with each Cu+ and making the reduced copper from apple green to purple complex with strong absorbance at 562 nm.

 

 

Special Characteristic :

 

  • Broad linear range: with standard protocol for 20-2000 μg/mL and enhanced protocol for 5-250 μg/mL
  • Compatible: unaffected by typical concentrations of most ionic and nonionic detergents
