Introduction to Capillary Electrophoresis – Fundamentals and Operating Principles

If you use capillary electrophoresis (CE) in your work and want a better understanding of the technique, or want to start with CE and want to be well prepared, this course is for you. The course is designed for analytical scientists and technicians who use CE in their regular job, but also lab managers and quality assurance or regulatory people who need to review CE work might find it useful. No previous CE training is assumed, however, much of the course will also appeal to the experienced scientist who wants a firm ground in the basics of CE.

“Introduction to Capillary Electrophoresis” explains the fundamentals of CE from the ground up. The course comprises:

  • The basic principles of capillary electrophoresis
  • Ten different modes of CE, including CZE, CGE and cIEF
  • Equipment and operational details
  • Treatment of the capillary, the separation column
  • Electrokinetic and hydrodynamic injection
  • Multiple detection mechanisms
  • Corrected peak areas explained
  • How to get started with method development and how to predict the migration order
  • Tips for successful implementation of CE in your lab
