Electrophoresis is a method for separation and analysis of macromolecules (DNA, RNA and proteins) and their fragments, based on their size and charge. It is used in clinical chemistry to separate proteins by charge and/or size (IEF agarose, essentially size independent) and in biochemistry and molecular biology to separate a mixed population of DNA and RNA fragments by length, to estimate the size of DNA and RNA fragments or to separate proteins by charge

Applications of Electrophoresis:

  • Estimation of the size of DNA molecules following restriction enzyme digestion, e.g. in restriction mapping of cloned DNA.

  • Analysis of PCR products, e.g. in molecular genetic diagnosis or genetic fingerprinting

  • Separation of restricted genomic DNA prior to Southern transfer, or of RNA prior to Northern transfer.

Electrophoresis is used in forensics, molecular biology, genetics, microbiology and biochemistry. The results can be analyzed quantitatively by visualizing the gel with UV light and a gel imaging device. The image is recorded with a computer operated camera, and the intensity of the band or spot of interest is measured and compared against standard or markers loaded on the same gel. The measurement and analysis are mostly done with specialized software. Depending on the type of analysis being performed, other techniques are often implemented in conjunction with the results of gel electrophoresis, providing a wide range of field-specific applications.

Chromatography is a partition method that each scientific expert is familiar with the technique.

A separation process is a method that converts a mixture or solution of chemical substances into two or more distinct product mixtures. At least one of results of the separation is enriched in one or more of the source mixture's constituents. In some cases, a separation may fully divide the mixture into pure constituents. Separations exploit differences in chemical properties or physical properties (such as size, shape, mass, density, or chemical affinity) between the constituents of a mixture. A mixture in chemistry is a substance consisting of two or more substances that have been combined or mixed without chemical bonding taking place. In chemistry and chemical engineering, a separation process is used to transform a mixture of substances into two or more distinct products.

Separation and purification techniques is an important aspect in this modern era. It involved in separation and purification of homogenous and heterogenous mixtures to its purest form. Separation is the segregation of different types of solid waste at the location where they are generated (a household or business). The most common reason for separating wastes at the source is for recycling. To reduce the environmental impact of waste disposal, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) encourages communities to develop strategies to decrease landfill use and lower the risks and inefficiencies of incineration. Waste reduction and recycling are the most environmentally beneficial methods to manage waste. Increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases (GHGs) such as CO2 in the atmosphere is a global warming. Human activities are a major cause of increased CO2 concentration in the atmosphere, as in recent decades, two-thirds of the greenhouse effect was caused by human activities. Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is a major strategy that can be used to reduce GHG emissions. There has been an accompanying increase in interest in the academic community in environmental issues and research on ways to treat environmental problems. Separations could be used to concentrate contaminants for eventual destruction or immobilization and to remove contaminants and concentrate or purify them to the point where they can be used again and no longer be considered contaminants. Applications of separation methods are expected to increase as efforts are made to reduce waste volumes, reuse contaminants in inlet streams even further, or to remove containments from soils and groundwater.  Separation operations are currently important in almost every aspect of waste and environmental treatment. This track deals with techniques involved in separation and purification in various fields like green chemistry, radiology, containments of environment and instrumentation of the technique.
