MSB Symposia

Each year, our international community gathers in an inspiring location to discuss their latest results in the field of microscale separations and bioanalysis. The conference program covers aspects related to all major microscale separation techniques including capillary electrophoresis (CE), nano- and micro-liquid chromatography (LC), microfluidics, mass spectrometry (MS), CE-MS, Lab-on-a-Chip devices the fundamental aspects of micro- and nanofluidics, microchip fabrication, portable devices, as well as applications related to pharmaceutical sciences, biotechnology, clinical and forensic toxicology, omics techniques (proteomics, metabolomics, etc.), food analysis, nanoparticles, industrial chemicals, etc.



All MSB symposia follow a philosophy first introduced in 2013, which aims at encouraging the presentation and discussion of new, hot, sometimes controversial and mostly unpublished results.

The MSB series has a long history, which started in 1989 with the first MSB symposium organized in Boston, at that time called International Symposium on High Performance Capillary Electrophoresis (HPCE).
