We present a novel microfluidic system for the pH-gradient focusing of proteins with the integration of 16 parallel micro-mixers, a micro-column, and a multiplexer. In this work we successfully achieved the creation of 16 non-linear gradients and the generation of a solid-phase micro-column for the realization of anion exchange chromatography on a single chip. With the device we demonstrated the separation of a protein mixture of R-phycoerythrin and FITC-BSA based on pH-gradient chromatofocusing.
