Capillary electrophoresis (CE) as an analytical method is beginning to replace many conventional clinical laboratory methods, such as gel electrophoresis and high-performance liquid chromatography. CE is fast, versatile, and highly automatable. Now that reliable, high-resolution instruments with multiple capillaries are commercially available, CE may soon be used routinely in clinical laboratories for certain analyses. Many labs already use it for evaluating monoclonal gammopathies, for immunosubtraction as an aid to serum protein electrophoresis, for hemoglobin electrophoresis in evaluating hemoglobinopathies, and for quantitation of HbA1c. During this 60-minute webinar, Dr. Kazunori Murata of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center will explore what labs need to know when making the transition from gel-based to capillary-based serum protein electrophoresis.

Kazunori Murata


Laboratory directors, managers, supervisors, and other laboratory professionals interested in moving to or using capillary-based platforms for serum protein electrophoresis.


Kazunori Murata, PhD, DABCC, Assitant Attending Clinical Chemist, Department of Laboratory Medicine, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York, NY


Join AACC for this 60-minute webinar and learn what you need to know to make the transition from a gel-based to a capillary-based platform for serum protein electrophoresis.
During the program, Dr. Murata will discuss:

  • How capillary electrophoresis works
  • The benefits and limitations of performing serum protein electrophoresis by capillary electrophoresis
  • Taking advantage of immunosubtraction
  • Tips for how to make a successful transition from gel to capillary electrophoresis for serum protein electrophoresis

Dr. Murata will also answer participant questions during a live Q&A at the end of the webinar.
