Introduction to Electrophoresis

Electrophoresis is one of the main techniques used for molecular separation for analysis of biological or other polymeric samples. It is easy to perform and cost-effective and yet provides a high separation efficiency. It is mainly applied for analytical purposes. Electrophoresis is widely used in biological and biochemical research, forensic medicine, veterinary science, clinical investigations, … Read More

Types of Electrophoresis

Capillary, gel, paper, discontinuous or disc, isoelectric focusing, and isotachophoresis are the main types of electrophoresis. Electrophoresis refers to the migration of charged molecules through restrictive matrix, or gel, that is drawn by an electrical force. As force drags molecules through the gel, they encounter resistance from strands of the gel. This resistance retards its … Read More
