Abstract

Protein electrophoresis is a diagnostic technique that evolved from early basic studies of immunoglobulins. Although protein electrophoresis is readily applied to human diagnostic testing, the veterinary venue has only recently begun to realize the full potential of this simple technique. In the past decade, this tool has been successfully applied to avian diagnostics, where it allows for precise quantitation of albumin and globulin fractions. Changes in these protein components have value in detecting nephritis, hepatitis, mycotic diseases, chronic inflammatory diseases, and chlamydiosis. Additionally, with correct interpretation, electrophoretic results are an excellent prognostic indicator.
