The most abundant plasma protein in mammals is albumin. It is produced in the liver and transferred as a non-glycosylated protein into the plasma. This multifunctional protein can bind to ligands.
Albumin, Monomer bovine has been used as a:
- molecular weight (MW) and polydispersion index (PDI) reference standard for the analysis of hyaluronic acid (HA)-based eye drops
- standard in multi-angle light scattering coupled with size exclusion chromatography (SEC-MALS) for calibration
- model protein to generate subvisible particles (SVPs) for flow imaging microscopy studies
The binding properties of albumin can be used for a wide range of clinical, pharmaceutical, and biochemical applications.

Albumin is the most important circulatory protein involved in the control of Ca2+ (and Mg2+) levels in mammals.
