Barry L. Karger Receives Arnold O. Beckman Award for Separations Techniques

LCGC Europe eNews

Barry L. Karger, founding director of Northeastern University’s Barnett Institute of Chemical and Biological Analysis (Massachusetts, USA), has received the Arnold O. Beckman Award for Outstanding Scientific Achievements for his work in electrodriven separation techniques, sponsored by Sciex Separations, a division of AB Sciex (Massachusetts, USA).

Karger’s 50-year career has been focused on developing new analytical techniques for solving biological challenges. One of his many achievements was the development of a novel capillary electrophoresis method for the characterization of DNA molecules, a technique that was later used for sequencing part of the human genome. Karger is currently working on applying liquid chromatography–mass spectrometry (LC–MS) to investigate proteins.

Jeff Chapman, director of the CE Business Unit at Sciex Separations, said: “We are very pleased to sponsor this medal and award.” He added: “Professor Karger’s career truly exemplifies the values that this award was created to acknowledge, and his scientific legacy has shaped what is now state-of-the-art implementation of capillary electrophoresis.”

The award was presented at the 30th International Symposium on Microscale Bioseparations in Pecs, Hungary. For more information:
