Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 125 / Friday, June 27, 2008 / Notices Development Agreement (‘‘CRADA’’) with the licensee to perform further research on the invention for purposes of commercialization. The invention available for licensing is: [NIST Docket Number: 06–011] Title: Gradient Elution Moving Boundary Electrophoresis (GEMBE). Abstract: GEMBE is a method for performing electrophoretic separation and/or purification of compounds in a mixture. The essence of the invention is the use of a variable bulk flow in electrophoresis. The method uses the electrophoretic migration of chemical species in solution in combination with variable hydrodynamic bulk flow of the solution through a separation capillary or microfluidic channel. GEMBE can be used with the bulk flow solution flow in either direction with respect to the electrophoretic driving force. Continuous sample introduction eliminates the need for a sample injection mechanism, allowing for significant miniaturization. Dated: June 18, 2008. Richard F. Kayser, Chief Scientist. [FR Doc.
