Over one hundred individual proteins have been identified in serum, each with a specific set of functions and specific variations in concentration under different pathologic conditions. While some laboratorians prefer classic 5-banded separations, others prefer split-beta. Both are available on the QuickGel system, providing crisp, clear separation of the protein fractions. QuickGel Split-Beta gels separate the proteins by the classic electrophoresis zones, albumin, alpha 1, alpha 2, beta and gamma with the proteins migrating in the beta region split into two fractions,-Beta 1 and-Beta 2, between transferrin and C3 complement. In some instances, this may allow easier detection of small beta-migrating monoclonal gammopathies. QuickGel SPE proteins kits are packaged for use with serum; additional supplies and accessories are available for use with CSF and urine samples.

Additional Supplies for QuickGel Split-Beta and SPE Procedures:-SPE Normal (Cat. No. 3424), SPE Abnormal (Cat. No. 3425),-
|3426||Accessory Kit||10 templates and blotters|
These accessories are used in conjunction with the QuickGel Split-Beta and Classic SPE kits for CSF and urine samples. They may also be used to apply serum samples with either template or applicator blade style kits.
|3424||SPE Normal Control|
|3425||SPE Abnormal Control|
These lyophilized controls are prepared from pooled human serum and are for use with the QuickGel Split-Beta SPE kit listed above. Reconstituted controls are stable 5 days stored at 2- to 8- C. Each control is assayed for total protein, albumin, alpha 1, alpha 2, beta and gamma globulins.
