We have developed microchip based monolithic columns that can be used for liquid chromatography of small organic molecules, as well as, macromolecules such as proteins and dna. We use in situ chemistry techniques to form a porous structure inside microchannels. This technology addresses the need to perform chemical analysis with high efficiency, superior reproducibility, fast speed and better column stability - all at the same time.
Fabricate the microchannels using DDL facilities. Develop a process for in situ polymerization inside the microchannels and optimize the chemistry Perform separation of organic molecules to demonstrate device capability.More »
