What does IEF mean?

Isoelectric focusing
Isoelectric focusing, also known as electrofocusing, is a technique for separating different molecules by differences in their isoelectric point. It is a type of zone electrophoresis, usually performed on proteins in a gel, that takes advantage of the fact that overall charge on the molecule of interest is a function of the pH of its surroundings.
