- Consists of a combination of electrophoresis and immunodiffusion in a gel. It is based on the fact that in a gel medium, the movement of molecules in an electric field is similar to that in a liquid medium, with the advantage that free diffusion is lessened after electrophoresis. This method is used only for qualitative comparison of the protein in different samples.
