ZipChip Microfluidic Separations for Mass Spectrometry, which won a 2016 R&D 100 award, allows for direct analysis of complex biological samples providing sample preparation, separation and direct electrospray for MS detection, all on an integrated microfluidic device. ZipChips are compatible with a broad range of analytes from small-molecule metabolites and amino acids, through peptides and intact proteins, antibodies and antibody drug conjugates. ZipChip is deployed from fundamental academic research as well as in the biopharmaceutical industry from early-stage research through to monitoring of growth media and final biotherapeutics in production. With intact proteins and antibodies, ZipChip gives characterization of intact molecules in a near native state that is unique and not presently available with other MS-compatible techniques.
Each year for more than 50 years, R&D Magazine has honored the 100 best innovations in research and development. We are currently accepting applications for the 2017 R&D 100 Awards. Innovators with an exceptional product developed between January 1, 2016 and March 31, 2017 should apply. Submissions close April 14, 2017
