Relating to electrophoresis, as an electrophoretic separation.
Synonym(s): ionophoretic.


(i-lek″trŏ-fŏ-rē′sĭs) [ electro- + Gr. phorēsis, being carried]
The movement of charged colloidal particles through the medium in which they are dispersed as a result of changes in electrical potential. Electrophoretic methods are useful in the analysis of protein mixtures because protein particles move with different velocities depending on their mass and charge. electrophoretic (-ret′ik), adjective

gel electrophoresis

The separation of whole or fragmented molecules, such as nucleic acids, through an electrically charged gel. The smaller the molecule, the faster its migration through the gel.
