HSA, Human Serum Albumin. A chemically-fractioned component of blood that may be added to diluents to increase allergen stability. The albumin coats the interior wall of the glass vial, preventing allergenic proteins from adhering. Additionally, albumin stabilizes protein aggregation, thereby promoting protein stability. This stabilizing diluent can be used to maintain potency when dilutions are performed.
