Immunoelectrophoresis (810)


Learn how immunoelectrophoresis identifies proteins based on their combined electrophoretic and immunological properties. This method is useful to monitor antigen and antigen-antibody purity and to identify a single antigen in a mixture of antigens. In this experiment, serum proteins are separated by agarose gel electrophoresis and the point of equivalence is observed by the antigen-antibody complex formation.

• Explore electrophoresis and antigen-antibody interactions
• Learn to identify proteins based on their electrophoretic and immunological properties
• Discuss the research and clinical applications of immunoelectrophoresis
