2D gel electrophoresis is the technology that everyone loves to hate-it requires manual dexterity and precision to reproduce precisely and is thus not well-suited as a high-throughput technology. Although almost everyone would like to replace it, the resolution and sensitivity it offers are exquisite and unsurpassed if one wants a global view of cellular activity. There have been several recent developments, for example, the detection of low abundance proteins, and the resolution possible with narrow-range IPG gels.
