Welcome to MCF

The Minnesota Chromatography Forum is a scientific society committed to the advancement of chromatography. Since its founding in 1978, the MCF has provided area chromatographers with the opportunity to expand their knowledge in the separation sciences in a variety of ways.

Each year three evening sessions are held with invited speakers ranging from local experts to leading international chromatographers. In addition to the evening meetings, a three day Spring Symposium and Exposition is held in the Minneapolis / St. Paul area.
