Integration of microfluidic LC with HRMS for the analysis of analytes in biofluids: past, present and future.

Recent advances in microfabricated devices such as chip-cube and ion-key technologies offer the potential for true implementation of cLC in the modern laboratory including the benefits of the combination of this type of separation with high-resolution MS.
