On this website ROZING.COM Consulting, I have collected documents that are dealing with basics and important aspects of pressure and electrical field driven liquid phase separations.


The 41th Symposium on High Performance Liquid Phase Separations and Related Techniques, HPLC2014, took place in the Hilton Riverside Hotel, New Orleansand from May 11-15. The symposium was attended by approx. 770 delegates. About 60-70 of these were registered as exhibitors. Accounting for invited delegates, there were about 600 paying delegates. More than 200 orals and over 450 posters were presented. Ca. 45 manufacturers exhibited besides 20 media partner. These numbers are significantly lower than at HPLC2013 in Amsterdam.

The 30th International Symposium on MicroScale Bioseparations (MSB2014) took place in Pécs, Hungary, April 27 - May 1. The meeting was organized by Prof. Ferenc Kilár, who was the symposium chairman together with Profs. Attila Fellinger and András Guttman as co-chairmen under the auspices of the University of Pécs. The MSB symposium traditionally focuses on fundamental aspects of separations on the microscale or down to nanoscale. The scientific areas of the symposium cover the application of electrically driven, microscale separations for (bio)analytical  measurements  in  life  science  research,  (bio)pharmaceuticals  development,  forensics, toxicology,  doping  analyses,  food  safety  and  authenticity  and  keeping  our  environment  clean  and sustainable. See the symposium website for more information.

From October 6 - 9, 2013, the 20th International Symposium on Electro- and Liquid Phase Separation Techniques (ITP2013) took place in Puerto de la Cruz, Tenerife, Spain. The symposium series is one of the premier symposia on electrical field driven liquid phase separation techniques. Originating from a conference with premier focus on isotachophoresis (explaining the acronym) the series evolved to comprise all liquid phase electro separation techniques. Initially bi-annually, the series now takes places every other year in the Americas and Europe and has expanded it focus to encompass pressure driven liquid phase separations (HPLC).

 Dear all,

It is my particular pleasure to announce that I have received the Uwe D. Neue Award in Separation Science at the 41st International Symposium on High Performance Liquid Phase Separations and Related Techniques (HPLC2014), May 11-15 in New Orleans, USA. For details about the symposium click here. This award honors a distinguished industrial scientist, preferably 15 or more years after receiving his or her doctoral degree, who has made a significant contribution to the field of separation science and continues to advance it. In addition, the awardee should be an industrial scientist, and one who was instrumental in the embodiment of technology in commercial products. The award was created in honour of the legacy of Dr. Uwe D. Neue, late scientist and Waters® Corporate Fellow and is sponsored by Waters Inc.

From June 16 - 20, 2013, the 39th International Symposium on High-Performance-Liquid-Phase Separations and Related Techniques, better known as the HPLC conference series, took place in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The symposium draw > 1500 participants from all over the world to the Amsterdam Rai Conference center. The symposium chairman Prof. Peter Schoenmakers of the University and his local organisation committee did an excellent job and made this issue an awesome event to be remembered for many years

From January 28 -  January 31, the wellknown Hyphenation Techniques in Chromatography took place in Bruges, Belgium. Since a few years, the focus of the symposium has been expanded with Hyphenated Techniques for Sample Preparation. This were the 13th issue of HTC and the 3rd issue of HTSP. Bruges is a small town in the western part of Flanders in Belgium which is dominated by its medieval patrimonium of churches and official buildings, squares and streets. The symposium took place in Congress Centre Oud Sint-Jan which is one of those old buildings rejuvenated into a congress center. The site is very concise but allowed three parallel sessions, provided ample space for posters and an exhibition on the top level where coffee and lunch was served. Further details can be taken from the symposium website.

This meeting was organized under the auspices of the Section Analytical Chemistry of the Royal Netherlands Society of Chemistry (KNCV) by Cari Sänger-van de Griend of Kantisto BV and Rawi Ramataur, of the Division of Analytical Biosciences at Leiden University on April 26, 2013. The meeting program was jointly arranged with the Section Analytical Chemistry of the Royal Belgium Society of Chemistry (KVCV) with Yvan van der Heyden and Debby Managelings, of the Department of Analytical Chemistry and Pharmaceutical Technology of the Free University of Brussels, and Ann van Schepdael of the Drug Analysis Group at Leuven University. AVANS+  an advanced training institute in The Netherlands hosted the meeting under local responsibility of Nico Vonk.

This three-part series of educational webinars on UHPLC will address and explain fundamental aspects of UHPLC to provide participants with insights and knowledge to help them make informed choices when they are preparing to apply UHPLC in the laboratory in practice. The webinar cover three core areas in three separate webinars.

14, the 29 th  International Symposium on MicroScale Bioseparations (MSB2013) took place at the University of Virginia, Charlottesville.  The MSB-series was first established in 1989 in Boston by Professor Barry Karger (Barnett Institute at Northeastern University, Boston) as the symposium series on High Performance Capillary Electrophoresis (HPCE).The symposium has been very successful with growing interest in CE in the 1990ties and the beginning of the last decade. Despite the emphasis change in 2005 on the broader field of electrical and pressure driven micro-scale separations for bio-analysis, participation in the symposium had been declining especially with the US issues
