Welcome to the Society for Microscale Separations and Bioanalysis

The Society for Microscale Separations and Bioanalysis (SMSB) is committed to promoting the development and applications of microscale separations. Microscale separations enable high-throughput and/or high-performance analyses at reduced costs and with a lower sample and solvent consumption, being therefore highly competitive analytical approaches in today's research, including fundamental studies, drug discovery and development, clinical and forensic toxicology, food analysis, and -omics approaches.


The Society, an independent and non-profit organization

The SMSB is an independent, non-profit organization, governed by a Board of Directors. It serves a community of researchers working in a large diversity of fields focusing on the development or the applications of microscale separation techniques, who gather once per year at the International Symposium of Microscale Separations and Bioanalysis (MSB).
