A chip-scale capillary electrophoresis/liquid chromatography mass spectrometer (CE/LC-MS) that matches the performance of today’s mainframe systems.


ARROWS: Advanced interfaced micro-systems Research for analysis of Real-wOrld clinical, food, environmental and Waste Samples

The goal of ARROWS is to develop a microengineered platform for the analysis of ‘real-world’ samples from the food, drink and healthcare industries. The principle deliverable will be a chip-scale capillary electrophoresis/liquid chromatography mass spectrometer (CE/LC-MS) that matches the performance of today’s mainframe systems.

Our vision is to offer users from the food, environmental and clinical sectors ‘more for less’ by delivering the functionality of a laboratory-scale, high-end CE/LC-MS system, which today is the size of a filing cabinet, in a mass-deployable tool the size of a desktop PC.
