Recent Advances Increase HPLC Use In Life Sciences Author: FRANKLIN HOKE

The use of high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) in life sciences laboratories surged in the late 1970s and early 1980s, according to many researchers, as the technique's ability to precisely separate and quantify biological molecules grew. Advances in the columns--the central instrument components in which the separations actually occur--are credited with much of this progress, but improvements in pumps, injectors, detectors, and computer data- analysis systems also played their parts.

The 44th annual Pittsburgh Conference on Analytical Chemistry and Applied Spectroscopy (PITTCON '93) is being held at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta from March 7-12. PITTCON '93 will feature the presentation of more than 1,800 technical papers and symposia, and more than 900 companies will display their latest products at nearly 2,900 booths. High-performance liquid chromatography will be the subject of several meetings, as witness the following list....
