Serum protein electrophoresis
Electrophoresis, an analytical separation method, is the migration of ions in an electric field to separate charged particles based on their charge, shape and effective size depending on the solution environment and the strength of the electric field.
A subgroup of electrophoresis in laboratory analysis is serum protein electrophoresis. The aim of all serum protein electrophoreses is to detect dysproteinemias (increase or decrease of certain proteins) or paraproteinemias (proteins produced by degenerated cells).
Quality controls for native serum electrophoresis
The Duotrol® Elpho Accuracy Control Sera normal and abnormal are used to monitor the quantitative analytical determinations in serum protein electrophoresis in the normal or pathological range. The lyophilized control sera are based on human serum matrix.
The classical serum protein gel electrophoresis (also: serum electrophoresis), a routine medical laboratory test, is used to separate the serum proteins (proteins of the blood serum) in a native gel electrophoresis for cellulose acetate or agarose.
Controls for Serum Protein Capillary Electrophoresis
The Duotrol® Elpho Capillary quality controls in two measuring ranges are used to monitor quantitative analysis determinations in serum protein electrophoresis on capillary electrophoresis systems in the normal range. The lyophilized quality controls have a human serum matrix.
Protein fractions in serum protein electrophoresis

Changed amounts of individual protein fractions can be an indication for various diseases:
Protein loss syndromes, liver cirrhosis, nephrotic syndrome, chronic inflammatory bowel diseases, acute and chronic inflammation, paraproteinemia, chronic diseases, multiple myeloma, antibody deficiency syndromes, monoclonal gammopathy
