This technique is widely used in Laboratories, especially in molecular biology laboratories, as it is used in important processes such as: separation, analysis and purification of RNA, DNA, or proteins, nucleic acids, this process is carried out because most biomolecules have an electric charge where their magnitude depends on the pH of the medium in which they are found; because of this biomolecules move when they are subjected to an electric field towards the pole of charge opposite to that of the molecule.
How it works is a simple process, separating molecules according to their size and electrical charge, using an electric current to push the molecules through a gel or other matrix, with the pores of the gel acting as a sieve.

Electrophoresis equipment that a Laboratory may require


Horizontal Gel Electrophoresis units have been designed by scientists with the Laboratory environment in mind. Our Horizontal Electrophoresis tanks provide a flexible, easy-to-use platform for all your Horizontal Electrophoresis requirements.

With a wide range of tank and tray sizes, as well as numerous comb options, these systems can handle all kinds of Electrophoresis experiments. Our YR series of horizontal gel units offers the most versatile solution for DNA and RNA agarose gel Electrophoresis on the market today.


Electrophoresis is commonly used in biomedical research to analyze and separate proteins, nucleic acids and other cellular components. It is also used in clinical applications to detect and analyze biomarkers and in the food and pharmaceutical industry for the identification and quantification of chemical compounds.

In this technique, molecules are placed on a gel (e.g. agarose gel or polyacrylamide gel) and applied to an electric current. The molecules move through the gel at different speeds, depending on their charge and size, and separate into distinct bands.

Multiple Myeloma and Protein Electrophoresis

Multiple myeloma is a multifocal plasma cell neoplasm that affects the bone marrow and is associated with the production of a serum and urinary monoclonal protein. The cause is a progressive unregulated proliferation of plasma cells that accumulate in the bone marrow. These cells secrete immunoglobulin (Ig) in excess, usually: 57% IgG, 21% IgA, 1% IgD, IgM, IgE, only rarely in 18% of cases of light chains alone.
