Jan Petr Research Group

Welcome to Jan Petr Research Group!

We specialize in analytical chemistry, especially in capillary electrophoresis, mass spectrometry, and low-cost microfluidics. We focus on the development of new methods for chiral separations and for on-line preconcentration of analytes. We are interested in the connection of capillary electrophoresis with electrospray ionization mass spectrometry, and capillary electrophoresis with inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry. We also analyze the behavior of nanoparticles in capillary electrophoresis. In the field of microfluidics, we develop new low-cost microfluidic devices from paper, foil, plastics, and PDMS. We are also using 3D printing to design new microdevices.
