NEBuffer™ System: now with Recombinant Albumin 


NEBuffers to be BSA-free Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) is commonly used to stabilize
some proteins during reactions and can also prevent adhesion to reaction tubes and pipette surfaces.
Despite this, we also understand that there is an increased desire for comparable
performance using BSA-free reagents. 
Starting April 2021, NEB began its transition to buffers containing Recombinant Albumin (rAlbumin)
for restriction enzymes and some DNA modifying enzymes. All information on the website has been
updated to reflect this change. We anticipate this change to rollout over several months, so you may
not receive the new buffer until later in the year. 
NEB has rigorously tested both buffers and has not seen a difference in enzyme performance when
using either. Therefore, either buffer can be used with your enzyme. 
NEB feel that moving away from animal-containing products is a step in the right direction and are able
to offer this enhancement at the same price.
