Punctuated Microgradients for Electric Field Separations
An interview with Mark Hayes, a finalist for the 2012 FACSS-SciX Innovation Award.
Part of the 2013 podcast series presented in collaboration with the Federation of Analytical Chemistry and Spectroscopy Societies (FACSS), in connection with SciX 2013, the federation’s North American conference.

Mark Hayes is an associate professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona.
He was a finalist for the 2012 FACSS Innovation Award for the following paper:
“Punctuated Microgradients for Electric Field Separations” (Mark Hayes, Stacy Kenyon, and Paul Jones).
The Hayes laboratory focuses on developing new technology for analyzing ultrasmall volumes of biological fluids and tissues. Examples of possible developments include disposable clinical assay chips, implantable micro health monitoring systems, millions of parallel assays from single microscopic sample, and the ability to chemically map tissues at high spatial resolution. The work discussed in his FACSS presentation is based on punctuated microgradients separated by flat field zones in a microfluidic format.
About the FACSS Innovation Award
The FACSS Innovation Award showcases the newest and most creative science debuted orally at a FACSS-organized conference.
More about the SciX conference:
The North American meeting of FACSS is now called “SciX — The Great Scientific Exchange.” SciX covers the whole of analytical chemistry with an emphasis on emerging technologies. SciX carries the FACSS tradition of a strong technical program (over 100 symposia), many prestigious awards, exhibits, a variety of workshops, an employment bureau and multiple social networking opportunities.
SciX is the National Meeting of the Society for Applied Spectroscopy (SAS) and the North American Society for Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (NASLIBS).
