    Abstract

    A method is described for the use of ultrathin-layer agarose gels in phenotyping erythrocyte acid phosphatase (EAP) by isoelectric focusing (IEF). The results obtained using ultrathin-layer agarose gels are shown to be equally reliable and reproducible in comparison to established ultrathin-layer polyacrylamide gels. IEF of EAP on 0.168-mm agarose gels took place in 90 min using the LKB Multiphor system. The technique described allows for both time and cost efficient phenotyping of EAP.
