MSB 2012 Shanghai

As one of the leading international conferences for bioseparation and bioanalysis, the International Symposium on MicroScale Bioseparations (MSB) is the premier platform for communicating, presenting and debating innovative ideas and techniques for microscale sciences. This year, MSB 2012 will be held in the modern city of Shanghai, China. To celebrate this event, Wiley presents a joint Virtual Issue, highlighting articles covering relevant topics of the meeting from leading separation science journals:
ELECTROPHORESIS, Journal of Separation Science, Biomedical Chromatography, and Rapid Communications in Mass Spectrometry.
