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