Free Flow Electrophoresis

The FFE system provides a fluid-phase fractionation of charged bioparticles, biopolymers or other charged or chargeable entities on a fast, preparative and continuous basis that guarantees best analyte recovery. New separation media were recently shown to support high-resolution separation and enrichment:

  1. CHIEF-Separation protocols for amphoteric analytes:
    • FF-IEF with commercial ampholytes for separation of protein isoforms
  2. ZE/IEF-Separation protocols for amphoteric and non amphoteric analytes:
    • FF-ZE to FF-IEF continuous switch within 1 experiment
    • 10 µg up to 400 mg protein/h separation of bioparticles, protein complexes, membrane proteins and of protein isoforms like antibodies
    • reduction of proteome complexity and the identification of low-abundant proteins
  3. FF-IZE/IITP Separation Protocols for non amphoteric analytes:
    • non-amphoteric separation of analytes like Nano particles, liposomes, or polysulfonates, like Dendromeres
  4. FF-ZE and FF-FSE Separation Protocols, using volatile media:
    • Enrichment of drug metabolites from water with a capacity of up to 100 ml/h
  5. Various Separation Protocols for Exosomes from human plasma and cell culture media:
    • Heterogeneity of exosomes demonstrated with > 7 subfractions
    • Purity of exosome shown by ultrafiltration of FFE subfractions
