Protein electrophoresis is a laboratory technique used to identify and measure specific proteins by separating them based on their physical properties.
The test involves placing the test serum on a medium and applying an electrical field which causes the proteins to migrate through the liquid. Proteins separate based on their electrical charge, size and shape, meaning the pattern of proteins formed allows identification of specific proteins.
This is an automated serum or plasma assay, typically used in support of nonclinical research studies. Please contact us for site-specific details in regards to research model capabilities.
