QuickGel Proteins

Split-Beta and Classic 5-Band

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.

QuickGel Chamber

The QuickGel Chamber features a cooled electrophoresis platen and built-in carbon electrodes. The cooled platen prevents protein degradation and provides crisp separations. Just set a QuickGel in place and close the lid to begin electrophoresis.
