2D Gel Electrophoresis
Two dimensional (2D) gel electrophoresis is an established technique considered to be the best option for high-resolution profiling of low abundance proteins. The analysis of complex protein samples can be tedious, time-consuming, and expensive. Recent advancements in sample fractionation and 2D electrophoresis enable researchers to overcome these problems in identifying low abundance proteins in complex biological samples.
ZOOM® Benchtop Proteomics System
The ZOOM® Benchtop Proteomics System offers an integrated solution, in a mini gel format. This innovative system makes sensitive protein profiling accessible to novice, as well as experienced, proteomics researchers. It complements the concept of large-format 2D gel profiling with sample fractionation, first and second dimension gel electrophoresis, followed by staining with mass spectrometry-compatible stains. Initial analysis with the ZOOM® Benchtop Proteomics System followed by final analysis on large format gels offers considerable cost and time savings.
