High performance capillary electrophoresis: An overview

Kálmán Benedek, A. Guttman

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Recent developments in drug discovery and drug development spurred the need for novel analytical techniques and methods. In the last decade, the biopharmaceutical industry set the pace for this demand. The nature of the industry required that novel techniques should be simple, easily applicable, and of high resolution and sensitivity. It was also required that the techniques give information about the composition, structure, purity, and stability of drug candidates. Biopharmaceuticals represent a wide variety of chemically different compounds, including small organic molecules, nucleic acids and their derivatives, and peptides and proteins.
