The electrophoresis became a chemical analysis method by the pioneering works of Arne Tiselius from Uppsala University in 1930s yielding Nobel Prize in chemistry in 1948 [1]-[9].
Swedish biochemist Arne Tiselius was awarded the 1948 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for research he did nearly 20 years earlier "on electrophoresis and adsorption analysis, especially for his discoveries concerning the complex nature of serum proteins." This work has evolved in today's current capillary electrophoresis (CE) analytical instruments that are increasingly being used in protein-based drug development, genetic analyses, carbohydrate studies, forensics, agrochemical development, and chemical research and manufacturing, among other applications.
They also insist that "electrophoresis was first described by Arne Tiselius", when, in fact, it was practiced soon after the jumping frog legs of Galvani and the invention of the pila by Volta (the first power supply delivering continuous electricity) in the early 1800s.
