Hi all, 

I need to test some antibodies (that are secreted into tissue culture 
medium) directed against a chemical protein modifier.  

I plan to use BSA modified with this modifying reagent as coating material 
in microplates. In subsequent precossing, skim milk will be used and the 
supernatants to be tested contain bovine serum, i.e. albumins. 
Do I need to be afraid of competition of these albumins for the plate 
resulting in loss of the material used for coating (since affinity of albumin for 
the plastic is not infinite) or is my concern more of theoretical nature?

All input is welcome!
