QuickGel Assays

Automate or Manual

Automate with SPIFE
QuickGels can be used on the SPIFE system to take advantage of the system's automated sample application, separation and staining.

Easy to Use, Manual System
The QuickGel Chamber and Titan Plus Power Supply are designed for cost-effective separations with QuickGels.

Quality on a Smaller Scale
QuickGel electrophoresis products are compact and easy-to-use, allowing cost-effective manual separation without sacrificing quality or accuracy. QuickGel Chamber features a cooled electrophoresis platen and built-in carbon electrodes. Just set the QuickGel in place and close the lid to begin electrophoresis. With a quick change of the lid, the QuickGel chamber also serves as an incubator and dryer. The TITAN Plus Power Supply is well-suited for use with the QuickGel chamber.










QuickGel Cholesterol Profile


QuickGel Cholesterol Profile Gel


Smaller laboratories can now offer a complete lipid profile using the proven technology of the Helena Cholesterol Profile. QuickGel Cholesterol allows direct- not calculated - simultaneous measurement of HDL, LDL, VLDL and Lp(a) Cholesterol. Direct measurement of these cholesterol fractions is the only way to correctly adjust treatment of the CVD patient and assess risk for the new patient. Recent publications have proven the lipoprotein(a) is a causative factor for coronary disease and should be part of any risk assessment. It is also important to screen menopausal women for Lp(a) cholesterol levels. Because the Helena Cholesterol Profile assay measures the cholesterol content of the Lp(a) fraction and is unaffected by isoform size, it has been proven analytically superior to mass assays.







  • Quickgel Chamber

The QuickGel Chamber provides temperature-controlled electrophoresis, incubation, and drying in a tiny 8.5” x 10.5" footprint. The QuickGel Chamber can be used with most external electrophoresis power supplies. Carbon electrodes are built directly into the chamber lid. With a quick change of the lid, the QuickGel Chamber also serves as an incubator and dryer. No additional equipment or expense.
