CE/MS: From Small Ions to Biomolecules – Think CE!

Capillary Electrophoresis is extremely well suited to the separation of charged molecules whether they are small pesticide metabolites (<110 Da)  or large biomolecules such as whole proteins and antibody-based drugs (>150KDa). The technique is characterized by high-efficiency separations, allowing high peak capacity, and speed, only requiring very small sample volumes (ca. 10ul).

When coupled with Mass Spectrometry, CE/MS provides maximum separation power and sensitivity for compound identification, particularly when coupled to High-Resolution QTOF MS instrumentation. This webinar will provide a direct comparison of CE with LC separations and will highlight areas of complementarity and orthogonality. With examples of analyses ranging from small pesticide metabolites to antibody-drug investigations and specialized isoelectric focusing applications (cIEF), this webinar will demonstrate the true power of CE/MS in a modern laboratory.

•    How to couple CE to MS
•    Why CEMS is Complementary to LCMS.
•    How cIEF can be used with mass spectrometry
