The Novagen® BCA Protein Assay Kit can be used to determine protein concentration in the range of 20-2000 µg/ml in either a standard assay or microassay configuration. Kit components are sufficient to complete 500 standard-size reactions (50 µl protein sample plus 1 ml reagent) or 2500 micro-scale reactions (25 µl protein sample plus 200 µl reagent). A BSA standard (2 mg/ml) is provided for convenient and reliable preparation of standard curves.
This assay is robust and can be performed in the presence of many compounds. Some reagents, including chelating agents, strong acids or bases, and reducing agents, interfere with the reduction and chelating reactions on which this assay depends (Brown 1989). The BCA assay is compatible with the following Novagen protein extraction and lysis reagents: BugBuster® Protein Extraction Reagent, PopCulture® Reagent, CytoBuster™ Protein Extraction Reagent, Reportasol™ Extraction Buffer, and Insect PopCulture Reagent. Options for the removal or dilution of interfering substances are described in the kit literature.
