This book discusses the topic of affinity electrophoresis (AFF-EP), which has become a useful tool for studies of biomolecular interactions. The book will discuss AFF-EP as an analytical method which has been used successfully for the diagnosis, differentiation, and monitoring of patients with various diseases. The book will also discuss other uses for the AFF-EP method.
