Free Zone Capillary Electrophoresis

Part of the Springer Protocols Handbooks book series (SPH)


Electrophoresis within silica capillaries is a relatively new technique, with the first publications appearing in the 1970s followed by a rapid expansion and establishment of the technique in the 1980s. Commercial machines for the application of capillary electrophoresis appeared in the late 1980s and now a number of machines are manufactured.
