Since its inception, LC Magazine and LCGC North America has supported MicroSolv Technology Corporation's evolution from an "idea" by the sales and marketing team of the former, ACE Scientific Supply Co., Inc., to the present international company which it is today.

From this "original" idea, Scientific Resources, Inc. (SRi) was created in 1988 with the dual focus of selling consumables and entering the emerging technology market of capillary electrophoresis (CE). In 1992, SRi created a new and separate product line for CE and named it MicroSolvCE.

In 1997, the MicroSolvCE product line was spun off by SRi and incorporated as a separate company. Early efforts of the new company were directed toward basic research and development of unique technology for open tubular CE and new, evolutionary HPLC stationary phases. Working in conjunction with university faculty and MicroSolv's technical staff, many new and unique products, most notably the TYPE-C silica-hydride HPLC columns, were introduced to the separation science industry with the majority of these first announced to the market through LCGC.

Today, MicroSolv continues to specialize and develop new and exciting products for micro-scale techniques such as: CE, OTCEC, pCEC, capillary LC and "evolutionary" HPLC columns and consumables. In 2007, a strategic alliance was formed with Unimicro Technologies to market a new, innovative instrument that performs CE, pCEC, and capillary LC separations. Together, we will continue to be a part of the industry that LCGC has served so well for the last 25 years. We look forward to celebrating LCGC's 50th anniversary!
