The latest issue of Analytical Methods is finally available online. Take a look at our new cover and discover all about the research behind it.
Carlos Garcia and colleagues from the University of Texas at San Antonio, USA, present a new and fast microchip-inspired analytical device based on standard Plexiglas. Five plastic microfluidic components are directly connected to capillary tubes that easily enable the in-channel detection of analytes. The researchers demonstrated the efficiency of this method performing analysis of inorganic cations by capillary electrophoresis from soil samples from the Atacama Desert.
