Methodologies for Allozyme Analysis Using Cellulose Acetate Electrophoresis

Methodologies for Allozyme Analysis Using Cellulose Acetate Electrophoresis

Paul D.N. Hebert and Margaret J. Beaton
This practical handbook was written by Paul D.N. Hebert and Margaret J. Beaton of the University of Guelph, Ontario detailing the methods they developed for genetic analyses of freshwater zooplankton using cellulose acetate electrophoresis. With minor modifications, the methods have also been used to analyze the allozyme variations of fish, flatworms, mollusks, insects, terrestrial plants and marine algae.

Immunofixation for the Identification of Monoclonal GammopathiesImmunofixation for the Identification of Monoclonal Gammopathies
Lawrence M. Killingsworth, Ph.D. and Barbara M. Warren
This monograph is a quick, practical reference for laboratorians. The booklet presents an overview of free light chain disease and the optimum protocol for accurate results and reporting. In addition, it includes a discussion of samples with more than one monoclonal immunoglobulin band, free heavy chain disease and polyclonal gammopathies. It presents 18 case studies with correlating immunofixation (IFE) and immunoelectrophoresis (IEP) gels. A concise comparison of the characteristics of IFE and IEP procedures clearly illustrates the definitive results obtained with IFE because of the increased sensitivity and resolution.

Helena Lp(a) Methods Booklet

 

Clinical Value of Routine Determination of Lp(a):
Clinical Value of Routine Determination of Lp(a):
Clinical and Methodological Considerations

Helena Laboratories is pleased offer this educational monograph edited from the expert panel discussion, “Clinical Value of Routine Determination of Lp(a): Clinical and Methodological Considerations”. This workshop was held July 27, 2004 at the AACC • ASCLS • NACB Annual Meeting. Faculty included Dr. Robert Galen, Dr. Sanda Clejan, Dr. Herbert Naito, and Dr. Joseph McConnell. Comments from Dr. Jane Emerson are also included in this monograph. The purpose of this workshop was to discuss emerging cardiac risk factors including the role of Lp(a) in the routine evaluation of patients for CAD risk, the problems associated with different analytical methods for the determination of Lp(a), and the relative significance of Lp(a) and CRP in assessing atherosclerotic burden and vulnerable plaque.
Of note was the presentation of data from a 4-year study of angiography patients comparing Lp(a) methods and CRP. Recommendations for extended risk marker panels were also provided. This guide is free for the asking. To request a copy, email us at Literature@Helena.com or call our Literature Services Department at 1-800-231-5663.)
