IIT Hyderabad Researchers Develop a Simple, affordable & Environment-friendly Device to detect Bovine Serum Albumin. In the modern era of medicaldiagnosis, detection and quantification of albumin proteins are important. Essentially, albumin carries distinct substances such as vitamins, enzymes and hormones throughout the body. In addition, albumin would also help to maintain the nutritional balance. In particular, human serum albumin (HSA) has been of great interest. However, due to the structural similarities of bovine serum albumin (BSA) with respect to HSA, BSA has been used as a model protein in the research fields.

The published paper has been co-authored by Dr. Suryanarayana Jammalamadaka, Associate Professor, Department of Physics, IIT Hyderabad, and his Research Scholar Mr. Dwipak Prasad Sahu. The development and performance of their sensor for the protein, bovine serum albumin, has been published recently in the reputed peer-reviewed journal Scientific Reports. Indeed, this work was also filed for a patent.
