Blood plasma products like albumin often mean the difference between life and death for patients in emergency clinical situations. Also, many patients with chronic illnesses rely on albumin because of its amazing life-giving properties. Human serum albumin is actually one of the richest sources of blood plasma protein.

Understanding albumin’s role in the body.

Albumin is created in the liver and helps regulate osmosis and facilitate the movement of hormones, drugs and other substances through the bloodstream. When it comes to life-sustaining benefits, albumin has many amazing attributes, including the ability to transfer essential fatty acids from adipose tissue to muscle tissue. Additionally, albumin has many remarkable restorative benefits; patients who are recovering from severe trauma such as surgery, bleeding due to injury or burns are often treated with albumin because it has the propensity to boost the volume of blood plasma and support the body’s ability to heal. Albumin can also be used to restore low blood protein levels.

The importance of safe storage and distribution.

Human serum albumin is a very fragile product that requires appropriate storage conditions in order to avoid contamination. It is recommended that albumin be stored at room temperature at or below 86 degrees Fahrenheit. Albumin should also be stored away from heat, moisture and light and should not be frozen. It is also important to discard any unused portions to maintain the products purity and effectiveness.
