HAEMOGLOBIN ELECTROPHORESIS

Electrophoresis is a commonly used technique for separation of haemoglobin fractions. Haemoglobin being a charged molecule moves towards the positive pole at alkaline pH. Most commonly occurring normal and abnormal haemoglobin fractions can be separated on cellulose acetate membrane strips in 15-20 minutes at a potential difference of around 250 volts.

GTI-HB ELECTROPHORESIS APPARATUS

  • GTI-Haemoglobin Electrophoresis Apparatus is designed to provide high quality results. It can provide useful diagnostic information about most types of thalassaemias and abnormal haemoglobins.

    The package includes:

    • Electrophoresis Tank

    • Sample Applicator

    • Mini Power Supply

    • One year license of Thal-IT Mobile App

    • Hb Electrophoresis Kit

  • Salient Features:

    • Robust sample applicator to apply six samples at a time.

    • Electrophoresis tank designed to hold 57 x 37 mm Cellulose Acetate Strips.

    • Takes just 20 ml of buffer.

    • Built in illumination to indicate operation.

    • Mini power supply with a built in timer.

    • Turn around time 15-20 minutes.

ELECTROPHORESIS TANK

The electrophoresis tank has two buffer compartments with fixed bridges to accommodate cellulose acetate electrophoresis strips measuring 37 X 57 mm in size. Each compartment is equipped with a platinum electrode. The tank has transparent lid that allows visualization of the electrophoresis run.

SAMPLE APPLICATOR

The sample applicator can take six samples at a time. The applicator includes a two sided comb and an application rack with two fixed slots for sample loading and application. The left side of the rack is designed to hold 37 X 57 mm electrophoresis strips.

MINI POWER SUPPLY

The mini power supply is designed to deliver 250 volts for approximately 15 minutes. The on and off operation is indicated by green and red LEDs.
