Electrophoresis is a technique used for separation of proteins and nucleic acids. This technique is primarily used for RNA and DNA analysis. It is also used in biochemistry for separation of molecules based on size, affinity, or charge. The separation of proteins based on size, purity, and density is carried out using electrophoresis. The simplicity in using this technique enables its use in various applications, such as diagnosis of hemoglobinopathies, vaccine analysis, antibody analysis, and drug quality control.
Increasing use of next-generation sequencing, industry-academic collaborations, and increasing government funding for research on electrophoresis are factors driving the growth of the world electrophoresis market.
