Almost 40 years have passed since the concept of capillary electrophoresis (CE) was described by Hjertén (1) in 1967. It emerged as a viable analytical technique after the pioneering work of Jorgenson (2) in the early 1980s, and commercial instruments were first introduced at the end of that decade. It is appropriate at this time to survey the history of CE and to judge its success in the world of analytical instrumentation.
