It is renowned for its speed, resolution, simplicity, and the small sample and reagent requirements. It is exceptionally versatile, and a number of different and complementary separation mechanisms can be employed simply by changing the composition of the liquid inside the capillary. Here, the fundamental concepts of electrophoresis when implemented in capillaries and microchips are introduced.
