Correlation Capillary Zone Electrophoresis CCZE Micromachinery

CZE is known for its high detection limits. Correlation techniques, as used in chromatography, can be applied in CZE as well. The goal and basic principles are the same. The main problem is the high demand on the injection system, just as in CC. However, in CCZE the injection system can relatively easy be modified, because CZE is electrically - rather than pressure - driven.

Microchip technology is very well suited for application in CZE systems and particularly in correlation CZE. A high quality injection device on a microchip, connected to a fused silica capillary and particularly usable for correlation CZE, is reported. The speed of separation in a microchip CZE system can be increased due to higher accessible field strengths. Detection is the major problem, because of the smaller channel dimension. The application of correlation techniques drastically reduces the high detection limit in a modest time.

Solar Panel Basics

Global warming is a huge problem which will significantly affect every country in the world. Many people all over the world are trying to do whatever they can to help combat the effects of global warming. One of the ways that people can fight global warming is to reduce their dependence on non-renewable energy sources like oil and petroleum based products.
