Thermal degradation of Bovine Serum Albumen

I am currently working on the decomposition of Bovine Serum Albumen in 
the presence of various mineral surfaces. As a geochemist, I am looking 
at it from the point of view of the binding processes that occur etc.
However, what I would like to know is how long would it take
(approximately) for BSA to degrade thermally in solution at 80C to the 
point at which it gives virtually no response on ELISA plates?(I estimate 
about nine hours / am I grossly wrong?)
Please forgive my ignorance, but I'm new to immunology.

As our newsreader crashes frequently, could any replies be sent to my 
email address: Dave.Robertson at

Thanks in advance,
