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
- Dielectrophoresis, similar motion in a space non-uniform electric field
- Microelectrophoresis, a method of studying electrophoresis of various dispersed particles using optical microscopy
- Electrophoretic light scattering, a method for measuring electrophoretic mobility based on dynamic light scattering
Molecular Biology and Biochemistry
- 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
- Iontophoresis, a way of rapidly administering drugs through the skin
- Electrophoretic display, a device that displays media contents using charged pigment particles in an applied electric field
