Electrophoretic mobility of microscopically visible particles is measured from photographs of their oscillatory migration in a low frequency electric field. The measurements are inherently free of gravitational or thermal-convective drifting. Many measurements may be made from one photograph. An automatic timing circuit insures reproducibility and determines the sign of the particles' charge.
