The Tryptic Digest of Bovine Serum Albumin allows testing of matrix-assisted laser desorption and ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometers (MALDI-TOF MS). It is a mixture of proteolytic polypeptide produced by digestion of bovine serum albumin with the protease trypsin (bovine). Cysteines were reduced and carbaminomethylated before digestion.
It is recommended to use this calibration standard in combination with α-Cyano-4-hydroxycinnamic acid (HCCA) (Part. No. 8201344) as matrix.
The Tryptic Digest of Bovine Serum Albumin is supplied in five tubes per package allowing 5x250 calibration spots.
The material is for research use only. It is not for use in diagnostic procedures.
The tube box is shipped at ambient temperatures. It is recommended to store the standard on arrival at less than 0 °C.
