John Hinshaw asks what constitutes a chromatographic method and addresses some of the issues that method transfer raises for method documentation and validation.

The authors describe how this free downloadable software calculates and displays CZE separations after the user has entered sample and operations parameters. The underlying principles and mathematical basis are explained.

This article examines the results of chromatographic performance when using different buffers. A study of the origins of the differences in peak shape obtained when using varying buffers–additives is presented with regard to the analysis of basic peptides in reversed-phase HPLC.
