Integrated Clinical Electrophoresis from the original pioneers

Total electrophoresis

V8 Nexus, SAS Vitrési and Platinum Touch from Helena Biosciences: the most connected, versatile and high-performance analytical solution available.

Helena Biosciences are pioneers of clinical electrophoresis, a mature, reliable screening and confirmation method capable of use at all scales, from simple manual chambers up to fully automated laboratories running thousands of tests per day.

Clinical electrophoresis background

Serum protein electrophoresis is a powerful and well-established technique in which proteins are separated in a charged medium by differences in their electrophoretic mobility. In gel electrophoresis, a fixed matrix of acetate or agarose acts as a medium for the protein's separation, slowing larger proteins and allowing smaller proteins to migrate faster. For capillary electrophoresis all separation occurs in a narrow bore capillary filled with buffer.

Gel and capillary electrophoresis give comparable results, despite being different methods.

Helena Biosciences analysers support a range of techniques including serum protein, allowing us to provide a comprehensive portfolio of tailored tests:

  • Immunofixation
  • Isoelectric focusing (IEF)
  • Immunodisplacement
  • Capillary haemoglobin analysis
