Horizontal Striking
Streaking of spots in the IEF-direction

Spots are striking in the direction: sample application point ---> focusing point

TS-HorizontalStrikingPlusKlein

Mai 30, 2018

Remedy:
1. General:
Proteins are “dying” during migration from the starting point to the focusing point.
The volt-level was raised to early and too quick! Strips get too hot.
Do not raise the volt-level over 1000 Volt during the first 12 hours.

In our lab only this running condition below run properly,
all variations of this running condition failed:

24 cm IPG-strip, cup-loading, total time: 16 h (start 5 pm - stop 9 am)

2. Gradients including basic pH-values:
When pH-ranges over pH 7 are run use Bishydroxyethyldisulfide without other reducing agents
Point 1 (above) is also valide!
