Electrophoresis is the motion of dispersed particles relative to a fluid under the influence of a spatially uniform electric field.

Electrophoresis can also refer to:

Interface and Colloid Science[edit]

Molecular Biology and Biochemistry[edit]

  • Affinity electrophoresis, used to separate and characterize biomolecules on basis of their molecular characteristics through binding to another biomolecule
  • Capillary electrophoresis, commonly used to separate biomolecules by their charge and frictional forces
  • Gel electrophoresis, a technique used by scientists to separate molecules based on physical characteristics such as size, shape, or isoelectric point
    • DNA electrophoresis, a specific type of gel electrophoresis used to analyse DNA
    • Protein electrophoresis, a specific type of gel electrophoresis used to analyse proteins
    • Two-dimensional gel electrophoresis, a specific type of gel electrophoresis commonly used to analyse proteins which involves two separation mechanisms to separate molecules
    • SDS-PAGE, sodium dodecyl sulfate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, commonly used to analyse proteins
  • Immunoelectrophoresis, used to separate and characterize biomolecules on basis their molecular characteristics as well as binding of antibodies

Medicine[edit]

  • Iontophoresis, a way of rapidly administering drugs through the skin

Media support[edit]

  • Electrophoretic display, a device that displays media contents using charged pigment particles in an applied electric field
