Gadolinium-Labeled Albumin

Technical Information

Galbumin™ is gadolinium-labeled albumin bottled at a concentration of 25 mg/ml or at a concentration of 100 mg/ml. There are approximately 10 to 15 gadolinium atoms per albumin unit and the molecular weight of the product is ~ 74k Da.

In addition, BioPAL also provides several additional Galbumin products: Trackable Galbumin™ and Glowing Galbumin™. Trackable Galbumin is gadolinium-labeled albumin laced with europium to permit tracking via BioPAL's neutron activation service. Glowing Galbumin is gadolinium-labeled albumin that is co-labeled with FITC or Rhodamine B for fluorescent imaging.


BioPAL offers a full line of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) gadolinium contrast imaging agents for sale. Gadolinium labeled albumin is used for vascular MRI imaging. Gd-albium can be used for preclinical imaging and imaging research.
