Regular issues provide a wide range of research and review articles covering all aspects of electrophoresis. Here you will find cutting-edge articles on methods and theory, instrumentation, nucleic acids, CE and CEC, miniaturization and microfluidics, proteomics and two-dimensional electrophoresis.

On April 2 Professor Hjertén celebrated his 80th birthday, and it is an honor to take this opportunity to congratulate him on this special occasion and at the same time on his fruitful work. Stellan Hjertén's distinguished personality in research and life makes this celebration very special. It is therefore appropriate to devote a separate laudation in ELECTROPHORESIS to his achievements through which he has attained renown within the separation science community: indeed, he is considered undoubtedly to be the “Father of Capillary Electrophoresis”. Professor Hjertén's preliminary work with Arne Tiselius motivated him to commit his career to electrophoresis: the development of free zone electrophoresis certainly revolutionized separation science, and since the construction of the first “capillary electrophoresis” equipment, one of the most cited works in this field carries his name. His friends were very keen to contribute manuscripts to this Issue, covering almost all areas in which Professor Hjertén has worked in his distinguished career.
