It is our pleasure to announce the 27th issue of the International Symposium on MicroScale Bioseparations and Analyses, MSB2012 formerly known as the HPCE series, February 12 – 15, 2012 and invite you to come to Geneva.
The symposium traditionally focuses on fundamental aspects of separations on the ‘micro’-scale. For this issue, the organizers have added "Analyses" to the symposium title in order to emphasize that the symposium not just focuses on separation science but also on the application of microscale separations for (bio)analytical measurements in life science research, (bio)pharmaceuticals development, forensics, toxicology, doping analyses, food safety and authenticity and keeping our environment clean and sustainable.
The common denominators in all these fields are the “microdimensions” of the samples in which identity and concentration of the solutes present with increasingly growing sensitivity need to be determined.
A strong emphasis of the symposium will be on coupling of different separation methods and on their hyphenation with powerful detectors. Especially MS detectors have been proven as an invaluable and indispensable tool in particular in the “omics”-fields.
The symposium will offer plenary and keynote lectures and submitted oral presentations by academic and industrial scientists, poster sessions, workshops, tutorials and seminars by equipment manufacturers. The program layout will consequently be arranged in two parallel sessions; one emphasizing on fundamentals, the other on applications of microscale (bio)separations.
