cellasGEL Strips

Special Requirements?


CellasGEL “wet” cellulose acetate gel strips are ready to use and overcome many of limitations of traditional cellulose acetate membranes. CellasGEL’s advantages over dry cellulose acetate membranes are as follows:

  1. Wet state unlike dry membranes, CellasGEL is a cellulose acetate film produced in a wet form to facilitate buffer adsorption, but without the entrapment of air bubbles that inhibit electrophoresis

  2. Greater thickness  CellasGEL’s greater thickness (190-500μm) compared to dry membranes (160-190μm) allows application of larger sample volumes to enhance detection of poor quality specimens low in protein content

  3. High resolution samples may be applied to CellasGEL as wider but finer bands, without risk of diffusion, to make band quantitation more reproducible; this is further enhanced by extended migration distances (60-70mm) that improve band separation

  4. Amphiphilic CellasGEL’s lipophilic and hydrophilic properties make it the perfect separation medium for many different biological molecules, ranging from lipoproteins to haemoglobins

CellasGEL is supplied either as individual packs of 25 or 100 strips or within clinical test kits for the following applications:

  • Immunofixation Electrophoresis (IFE): Monoclonal Gammopathies of Undetermined Significance (MGUS); Multiple Myeloma (MM)

  • Serum Protein Analysis: Dysproteinaemia; Incipient Gammopathies

  • Haemoglobin Analysis: Haemoglobinopathies such as Thalassaemias and Sickle Cell Disorders

  • Lipoprotein Analysis: Hyperlipidaemias; High-density (HDL), Low-density (LDL) and Verylow-density (VLDL) lipoprotein evaluation
