D. Miniaturization in analytical separation techniques generally provides several advantages such as decrease in sample injection amount, and the enhancement of separation speed, efficiency, and detection limit. D. 39 A multiplexed (Mx) HF5 device has been made with six parallel HF5 modules connected to seven-port manifolds. This assembly shows the possibility of handling up to 50 mg of proteins without incurring overloading. Mx HF5 offers a unique advantage of scaling up HF5 separation without using wide-bore HF membranes, which would increase separation time.

Counter-terrorism efforts are concerned with detecting bacterial species in as close to real-time as possible. The organism must be detected without culture Mass Spectrometry and Tandem Mass Spectrometry for Protein Biomarker Discovery 39 from an environmental or clinical sample. Many samples collected for the purpose of biodetection are usually gathered through air sampling. The problem with this type of sampling is that many bacterial species can be present in these samples creating a large amount of background during analysis.
