Protein Lab

Protein Chemistry is part of the Specialist Biochemistry Cluster and performs a range of electrophoresis and immunofixation techniques, primarily used for Multiple Myeloma detection and monitoring. 

The department also quantitates serum proteins by nephelometry, HbA1c by HPLC and is experienced in iso-electric focusing of serum and CSF, cryoprotein analysis and capillary electrophoresis.  Mass spectrometry of intact proteins by ESI-TOF is an area of active research and development.
