Detection of hemoglobinopathies in newborns


Migele™ Gel Electrophoresis Unit

Migele™ Gel Electrophoresis Unit works with the RESOLVE™ hemoglobin kit to detect hemoglobinopathies in newborns and adults, including sickle cell disease and other hemoglobin variants and thalassemias. Now, blood screening labs can conduct these crucial, lifesaving screenings with our easy-to-use, cost-efficient, scalable solution.

How it works



RESOLVE kits separate hemoglobins by IEF on a thin agarose gel. The clean separation of Hb F from Hb A permits differentiation of sickle cell anemia (Hb SS) from sickle cell trait (Hb AS).

Due to the specificity and sensitivity of the gels we produce, separation of Hb C from Hb A2 and Hb E, as well as Hb D-Punjab and Hb G-Philadelphia from Hb S, is achieved.


Accurate Results

The RESOLVE hemoglobin kit separates whole blood, cord blood, or dried blood spot specimen for detection of normal and variant hemoglobins by isoelectric focusing. The kit can run on a flatbed electrofocusing unit. This assay is intended for use as an aid in the diagnosis of neonatal and adult hemoglobinopathies.

Results are visual and easily identifiable

The IEF technique combined with the specially formulated gels results in excellent separation of differing hemoglobin bands, allowing you to achieve identifiable results.

Time efficient

The RESOLVE kit lets you to complete the run within 60 (small gel, FR-9120) to 90 (big gel, FR-9400, FR-9360) minutes, excluding sample preparation. Multiple electrophoresis units can be run at the same time to produce more results within the same time frame.



A typical setup includes two to four electrophoresis units on one circulating water bath. Expansion of the system is possible with minimal cost. You can even save space by stacking the units on top of each other.
