ZipChip® is the new alternative to LC-MS. Based on cutting-edge microfluidic technology it integrates capillary electrophoresis and electrospray ionization into an easy to use system that simply replaces your mass spec’s normal source.
The ZipChip® platform prepares and separates a wide range of biological samples, then electrosprays them into your mass spec for analysis. Just clip it on. The process takes as little as three minutes, and results in better separation quality than most LCs in a fraction of the time. Simple workflows and multiple kit options cover a host of biotherapeutic, metabolomic and proteomic applications.
Pick an application, a chip and a kit. After that just two steps: Load the premixed background electrolyte and sample into the autosampler. Pop in a ZipChip and hit run. Use vials or 96-well plates. It’s hands-off from there. Smart chips tell the system which method to use based on your preferences. Samples are automatically loaded, separated and electrosprayed. Integrated software cues the mass spec to start analysis.
