General description

The Auto2D® 2-D Electrophoresis Device automates two-dimensional gel electrophoresis. The applied sample enters the first-dimension gel passively, separating proteins by their isoelectric points. After equilibration, the first-dimension gel is set onto a horizontal SDS-PAGE gel, which resolves proteins by molecular weight.

Two-dimensional gel electrophoresis has generally been regarded as difficult to perform and time-consuming, requireing advanced user training while offering low reproducibility and high inter-operator variability.


  • Differential proteomic analysis
  • Post-translational modification
  • Protein Isoforms
  • Western Blotting
