Our capillary electrophoresis (CE) technology is used in numerous applications including academic research, industry, small molecule drug development and quality control.
Forensics / Drug Screening - While the highly polar nature of basic pharmaceuticals makes Liquid Chromatography complex, CE has the ability to excel at such separations. The robust nature of this tool and the ruggedness of this particular approach are appropriate for screening protocols used in forensic toxicology.

Food and Beverage Manufacturing - The MDQ Plus, provides in-depth analysis of food compounds including anions, cations, organic acid content, and protein integrity, to better manage product process consistency, taste, quality, storage conditions, safety, adulteration and authentication.

Petrochemicals - Analysis of anion and cation content gives you a better understanding of the chemical makeup of petroleum and related products. For example highly purified terephthalic acid (PTA) and its esters are major components in the production of plastics and fibers like polyethylene glycol and polyester. The purity of PTA has a direct effect on the quality and color of the end products.

Biofuels - The P/ACE MDQ plus already excels in ion analysis and is a natural fit for biofuel production. The fermentation of lignocellulosic biomass to ethanol is an attractive route to fuels that supplements the fossil fuels.ncorporating, ion analysis, protein purity assays, isoelectric focusing and sugar analysis by capillary electrophoresis is invaluable in monitoring the fermentation and purification processes used in ethanol production.

Water Quality and Environmental - With ever-increasing water demands, quick and efficient identification of impurities, analytes or other contaminating molecules within a water sample is a key step in managing the safety of our water supply. Water is also a vital component in industrial production of semiconductors, metal plating, and is used in large volumes in nuclear power plants and pulp and per mills. The P/ACE MDQ Plus identifies analytes that lead to corrosion as well as contaminants that contribute to downstream environmental pollution.
