5 Days of exciting science and innovative talks in the world of liquid phase separation science and analysis


Welcome to the largest, most recognized international conference and exposition in the world of liquid phase separation science and analysis, including mass spectrometry, chromatography and electrophoresis. Internationally acclaimed experts will present dynamic and innovative talks in the program packed with papers on column and stationary phase technology, interface to mass spectrometry, microfluidic systems, capillary electrophoresis, LCxLC, QA&QC methods, QbD in separations, and application to real world problems. A special emphasis in applications will be on bioanalysis including: pharmaceuticals, antibody-drug conjugates, antibody characterization, continuous bioprocessing, biotechnology, proteins and proteomics, glycomics, metabolomics and lipidomics, food and nutrition, well-characterized biologicals, biofuels, environment, toxicology, and more! 


Plenary speakers


The plenaries will set the tone for the event, in which we aim to cover the most interesting developments from the past year, plus advances that we believe will make a splash in the years to come. 

  • Stacey Ma, F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd., "Analytical technologies in biopharmaceutical industry"
  • Richard D. Smith, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, "New paths for ultra-high resolution separations with mass spectrometry based upon structures for lossless ion manipulations"
  • Mary J. Wirth, Purdue University, "Avoiding the compromise: new bonded phases for coupling protein LC with MS"
  • Koji Otsuka, Kyoto Univ., "Specific interactions in liquid phase microscale separations”
  • Alberto Cavazzini, Univ. Ferrara, "State of the art and future perspectives of ultrafast chiral separations by liquid chromatography" 

The program will comprise of 55+ oral sessions of invited and contributed talks, presentations by exciting young scientists, hundreds of poster presentations, best poster competition, vendor-sponsored technical workshops, practical educational short courses, tutorials that will provide outstanding opportunities for newcomers to obtain a solid foundation in the field and for veterans to update their knowledge, and an abundance of networking opportunities. Meanwhile, the major exposition will showcase the latest and greatest in instrumentation, software, tools, accessories, and consumables. Throughout the exhibition hall you will find new and innovative products, new product launches, ground-breaking technologies, and experts in the booths who will be available to discuss challenges and offer solutions that you will be able to take back to your lab.
