- Prepared 50 mL of a standard saline solution (0.9 wt-% NaCl).
- Prepared 50 mL of a 50 mM Tris (not Tris-HCl) 50 mM NaCl solution.
- Prepared a stock solution of BSA that is roughly 5 mg in 5 mL of saline.
- Calculated your actual solution concentration.
- Using a quartz cuvette, recorded UV-VIS spectra between 200 nm and 800 nm.
- Prepared serial dilutions of 1μg/mL, 2μg/mL, 2.5μg/mL, 5μg/mL, 8μg/mL, 10μg/mL, 15μg/mL and 20μg/mL
- Added 20μL of the serial dilutions to a 1.5mL centrifuge tube
- Added 200μL of the Bio-Rad Protein Assay reagent. Use 1:4 concentrate diluted with water.
- Added 780μL of Tris/NaCl buffer to make the final volume 1mL.
- Obtained a UV-VIS spectrum.
- Blanks of Tris/NaCl buffer and 200 μLBradford reagent + 800μL buffer were also run
