The Thermo Scientific Pierce Micro BCA Protein Assay Kit is a special 3-component version of our popular BCA Reagents, optimized to measure (A562nm) total protein concentration of dilute protein solutions (0.5 to 20 micrograms/mL).

Features of the Micro BCA Protein Assay Kit:

Sensitive—accurately detect down to 0.5 µg/mL (2 µg/mL in microplate format)
High linearity—linear working range for BSA equals 0.5 to 20 µg/mL
Colorimetric—measure with a standard spectrophotometer or plate reader (562nm)
Compatible—unaffected by typical concentrations of most ionic and nonionic detergents
Convenient—microplate and cuvette protocols provided with the instructions
Stable—kit stable at room temperature; prepared working reagent stable for to 24 hours

The Micro BCA Protein Assay Kit is a specialized version of the popular Pierce BCA Protein Assay for determining the protein concentration of dilute samples. Mixing together the three Micro BCA Reagents results in a working solution that is sufficiently concentrated to measure protein when mixed with an equal volume of sample. The result is an assay for accurately measuring 0.5 to 20 µg/mL protein solutions. The assay is exceptionally linear and exhibits very low levels of protein-to-protein variability.
