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.

INVITED LECTURE (LP-2060; 15:00)
Analysis of dried blood spots by capillary electrophoresis by Prof. Pavel Kubáň (Czech Academy of Sciences, Brno, Czech Republic)

Soodabeh Hassanpour arrived back from the research internship at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark. She was working in the group of Prof. Jörg Kutter. Welcome!

Prof. Jiří Janata (School of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Georgia Tech, USA) had an interesting lecture dealing with nuclear energy at the Palacký University Olomouc; we supported the organization.
