16 July 2002 Electrophoresis as a technique for direct analysis of laser-tissue ablation products

Polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis is a technique that allows the constituents of complex biological mixtures to be resolved with respect to their molecular weight. This is a technique that has been used to identify protein or nucleic acid fragments, and it is now being applied to allow molecular analysis of laser-tissue ablation products. The hope is to allow for a greater understanding of the ablation process than is currently possible, as the effects of the interaction at a molecular level can be identified directly rather than inferred form other related phenomena such as mechanical, acoustic or thermal measurements. Here the preliminary work using This technique is presented, and plans for further work in the autumn at FELIX are outlined.
