Protein separation

Protein electrophoresis: overview and variations

Electrophoresis, the migration of molecules in the presence of an electric field, is commonly used to separate proteins in complex mixtures. Protein electrophoresis is a critical step in many of the workflows that isolate, identify, and characterize proteins, and many of the techniques that follow changes in protein expression during normal development and disease progression. Life Technologies provides everything you need for rapid, reproducible protein electrophoresis, whether it is the first or last step in your process.

Here we present an overview of protein separation technologies, including some of the basics of electrophoresis procedures, the Life Technologies products that can specifically address your situation, some specific application notes, and, finally, tips and tricks from our scientists that will speed your success.
