SPIFE Protein Gel 60

SPIFE Proteins

Split-Beta or 5-Band SPE

While some laboratorians prefer classic serum protein separations, others prefer a split-beta separation. With SPIFE Split-Beta gels, the proteins migrating in the beta region are split into two fractions, Beta 1 and Beta 2, between transferrin and C3 complement. In some instances, this may allow easier detection of small beta-migrating monoclonal gammopathies. Both the classic and split-beta formulations provide crisp, clear separation of the protein fractions. Light Chain Disease.
