More than ever, this international symposium not only covers liquid chromatography, but alternative separation techniques such as capillary electrophoresis, capillary electrochromatography and microfluidic separation techniques, i.e.
Catalog l00 includes a complete line of products for capillary electrophoresis, capillary electrochromatography, capillary HPLC, and other items for microscale separation science.
In contrast to gel electrophoresis, capillary electrophoresis (CE) reportedly is a promising technique for performing rapid and reproducible separation of double-stranded DNA (dsDNA) as well as single-stranded DNA (ssDNA), and its use is feasible for automated DNA analysis [17].
