This paper reports the first fully-integrated fully polymeric microchip for electrophoresis including electrodes for high voltage and also for contactless conductivity detection. The complete polymer microchip was demonstrated with a separation of the inorganic cations, K, Na and Li to benchmark performance. Rapid separations (30 s) with high electric field strengths (200 V/cm) yielded detection limits of 26-75 μM.
