Antigens and immunoglobulins are important biological entities. Interaction
of these components is being considered as a major criterion to assess the health status
in veterinary and medical science. Antigen-antibody reactions are highly specific. This
interaction between antigen and antibody has been used as the principle of
immunoelectrophoresis. This technique has got tremendous applications in basic and
applied health science. The present chapter describes principle, process, types,
applications, advantages, and limitations of various types of immunoelectrophoresis.
This information will be very useful for the students of immunology and scholars who
need to develop an understanding of immunoelectrophoresis and its applications.
