The NCBE’s electrophoresis equipment can be used to analyse proteins. You do, however, need a special type of agarose to carry out this work.
ABOUT THIS MODULE
Small samples of protein-containing foods (e.g., fish or nuts) are mixed with Laemmli buffer. This extracts the proteins and gives them a negative electrical charge. The samples are separated by electrophoresis, then the gel is stained and de-stained to reveal the proteins.
This module contains sufficient materials for the analysis of 96 protein samples.

Please note that once you have the Base Unit or a Science Year Protein Kit (see below), the most economical option is probably to buy a Protein Power! Module.

THE SCIENCE YEAR PROTEIN KIT
During the UK’s ‘Science Year’ in 2002, the NCBE provided a special one-off kit containing the materials from the Protein Power module plus eight sets of electrophoresis equipment. Unlike that free kit, current Protein power module does not contain any electrophoresis equipment.
