A focus of recent work has been the development of contactless conductivity detection for capillary electrophoresis. Studies regarding the optimization of the detector for use with conventional capillaries as well as with lab-on-chip devices have been carried out.

Most current projects pertain to the life sciences. The research of the group is partly related to pharmacy, as methods for clinical and pharmacological analysis are of particular interest and some are developed in collaboration with the Institute for Clinical Pharmacy.

The group also has interests in other areas of miniaturization of analysis, such as in flow-injection analysis, the development of a small atomic spectrometer based on a microplasma and in chemical sensors.

Examples of our work are given on these pages.
