The INTERLAB G26 is a diagnostic medical device in vitro for electrophoretic analysis of serum proteins, of unconcentrated urine proteins, of concentrated urine proteins, of hemoglobin, of lipoproteins, of isoenzymes and for the execution of several methods of immunofixation and isoelectric focusing. The G26 INTERLAB by the separation of different protein fractions using the principle of electrophoresis, that the difference in mobility between electrically charged molecules that orient and migrate with different rates when subjected to an electric field.
The migration is performed at constant temperature, obtained through the use of Peltier effect modules on agarose gel plates containing a specific buffer solution according to the method to execute. The gel acts as a support and molecular sieve and allows the different fractions could be resolved on the basis of net charge possessed. After electrophoresis, the gel is dried at a prescribed temperature, developed by appropriate staining, destained and dried. For methods that also allow the quantitative assessment, the measurement method is based on optical densitometry reading of a source diode LED and a photodiode detector.
The signal obtained is sent to the PC to be processed.
