Comprehensive reference text books can also be purchased through Sebia. Text books solely focused on the discipline of electrophoresis testing can be difficult to find. Sebia is pleased to offer text books specifically related to serum and urine protein electrophoresis and immunofixation testing, as well as the diagnosis of hemoglobinopathies with capillary electrophoresis technology.
Serum Protein Electrophoresis and Immunofixation: Illustrated Interpretations
By: Didier Le Carrer

Newly revised 2005 edition featuring an additional Cryoglobulinemia chapter and updated, higher resolution gel images throughout! There are few electrophoresis texts available today. This book is designed to expand the reader's interpretive skills and to be used as a frequently called upon reference book to assist with difficult clinical cases. Included are discussions of the basics of zone electrophoresis, monoclonal components, protein diagnostic studies of multiple myeloma, Waldenström's macroglobulinemia, other monoclonal components, oligoclonal immune patterns, and a chapter addressing cryoglobulinemia. This illustrated guide includes many example gels with their corresponding densitometric tracings to sharpen readers' skills in identification of very diverse and challenging case studies.

Urine Protein Electrophoresis and Immunofixation: Illustrated Interpretations
By: Didier Le Carrer and José Boucraut

The routine use of electrophoresis and immunofixation in the examination of urine proteins frequently poses an interpretation challenge. The use of an agarose gel that separates proteins according to their molecular weight makes proteinuria characterization more simple. This illustrated text is written to assist in the interpretation of varied patterns of proteinuria that may be encountered in routine clinical practice. Included are discussions of the pathophysiology of proteinuria, techniques of investigation of proteinuria, and a wealth of illustrated case studies with interpretations to assist the reader.

Carrier Diagnostics and Prevention of Hemoglobinopathies using Capillary Electrophoresis (CE). A Companion Handbook for the Physician, Pathologist, and Genetic Counselor.
By: P.C. Giordano, PhD.

This companion handbook provides a comprehensive understanding of hemoglobinopathies and thalassemias with recommendations for the physician. Laboratory diagnostics of these diseases is the central focus of this handbook; such topics are included concerning lab diagnostics: reflex testing, ethnicity data, analytical tools, CE result interpretation, reporting results, initiating prevention, and when to apply molecular technologies, among other topics. Lastly, genetic counseling is addressed in terms of the possible prevention of severe hemoglobinopathies and thalassemias, and the cultural elements involved in counseling. “A better understanding of the diagnostic results and a better communication between MDs, labs, and counselors is needed for better prevention strategy, using the existing elements of public healthcare.”
