Title: Microfluidic components driving performance in Liquid Chromatography


The microfluidic technology development has been compared to the revolution in microelectronics, where both performance and price point have benefitted from developments in the semi-conductor industry. The vision of a Lab-on-a-chip is however still far away and has shown to be technologically complex and commercially challenging.


In this presentation, examples of microfluidic products and product components will be discussed as they relate to liquid chromatography. They fall in 3 categories: 1. Miniaturization for sample limited applications; 2. Miniaturization to improve analytical performance; 3. Miniaturization to integrate functionality to reduce cost.
