2-dimensional electrophoresis (2-DE) is a powerful technique for separating proteins by isoelectric point and molecular weight. 2-DE offers fine-scale resolution of thousands of proteins and, unlike traditional SDS-PAGE, allows researchers to distinguish and characterize different protein isoforms and post-translational modifications (PTMs). However, despite its versatility, the popularity of 2-DE has been limited by its cumbersome nature and the expertise required to generate reproducible results.

In this webinar sponsored by MilliporeSigma, scientists will introduce how 2-DE can be fully automated using the Auto2D® Electrophoresis Device, improving speed, protein separation, and reproducibility. They will highlight how automated 2-DE streamlines a number of research applications, including the detection of residual host cell proteins (HCPs) in quality control and drug validation.

Topics to be covered

  • 2-DE automation using the Auto2D® Electrophoresis Device
  • Separating proteins with automated 2-DE
  • The importance of detecting HCPs
  • Using automated 2-DE as a complementary technique for HCP analysis
