Fluorescence detection can be a strong alternative to ultraviolet or other detectors for some compounds.

This is part two of a series of tutorials that explain, in the simplest manner, how statistics can be useful, even to chromatographers who normally find statistics difficult, with a minimal understanding of its features. This part explains linear regressions.

In this article, we discuss the use of CE-MS (sheath flow interface) for analysis of intact proteins as well as of protein digests. We discuss the unique aspects that the user needs to be aware of while testing biotherapeutics versus small molecule drugs. We also highlight that the optimization of CE and MS parameters together result in the creation of a more robust and reproducible protein analysis approach. Finally, we list some of the most common errors that are likely to occur during CE-MS analysis and suggest ways to overcome them.

Reversed-phase liquid chromatographic columns can be compared quantitatively for differences in selectivity by means of the hydrophobic-subtraction model. This allows selection of columns that are either equivalent or different in selectivity. The present paper both presents a summary of this approach and shows in detail how to use it in practice.

HPLC 2016, chaired by Professor Robert Kennedy, was held June 19–24 in San Francisco, California, at the Marriott San Francisco Marquis. This installment of "Column Watch" covers some of the highlights observed at the symposium including stationary-phase developments, particle technology, and areas of growing application of HPLC. In addition, trends and perspectives on future developments in HPLC noted from the conference are presented.
