In human medicine, serum protein electrophoresis techniques have been used for 5 decades.
A 74-year-old woman with toxic nodular goiter, diabetes mellitus, depression, gastroesophageal reflux disease, and hypercholesterolemia had routine serum protein electrophoresis done for the first time.
The serum protein electrophoresis was carried out by series of seven samples of 90 Volt HydraGel (Kit HYDRAGEL PROTEIN (E) K20) for 22 minutes with direct current amperage from 12 [+ or -] 3 milliamperes.
A diagnosis of multiple myeloma was considered, but findings on serum protein electrophoresis, urine protein electrophoresis, and urine immunoelectrophoresis were normal.
Humoral immunosuppressant activity of aflatoxin ingestion in rabbits measured by response to Mycobacterium bovis antigens using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and serum protein electrophoresis.
Serum protein electrophoresis was performed on a Helena Rep (Helena Laboratories, Beaumont, Tex), and immunofixation electrophoresis was performed using a Paragon electrophoresis system (Beckman-Coulter).
Laboratory tests demonstrated anemia of chronic disease diagnosed by a hematocrit of 25% associated with a low reticulocyte production index, high serum ferritin, and an elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate (91 mm/hr), with polyclonal hypergammaglobulinemia and hypoalbuminemia on serum protein electrophoresis.
Abstract: Serum protein electrophoresis has gained importance in avian medicine during the past decade.
