Five things we learned about electrophoresis

Agarose gel electrophoresis is one of the most versatile techniques in the biotechnology laboratory. However, we rarely think about how the technique was developed! So we decided to hit the literature to learn more about the research and development that…

Biotechnology Basics: Dye Electrophoresis

Agarose gel electrophoresis is an essential biotechnology technique used in research, clinical, and teaching labs across the world every day.  Electrophoresis uses electricity and a porous gel matrix to separate different molecules – dyes, nucleic acid, proteins – into discrete…
