Microchips for analytical purposes have attracted great attention over the last 20 years. In the present review, we focus on the most recent development of microchips for electrophoretic separation of proteins. This review starts with a short recalling about the microchips covering the basic microchip layout for CE and the commercial chips and microchip(More)
In order to study kin17 protein-DNA affinity, we have developed a fast and reproducible capillary electrophoresis (CE) analysis of a strongly basic protein: kin17 protein, using a nonpermanent coating based on poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO) to avoid adsorption of kin17. The coating procedure was optimized to provide a residual and stable electroosmotic flow(More)
We present a new CZE method, which uses a polyethylene oxide-coated capillary to separate native HSA from more than five of its structural variants. These variants include oxidized, truncated, and cysteinylated forms of HSA which can all be found in biopharmaceutical products. Both CE and MS confirmed the high degree of heterogeneity of HSA preparations.(More)
In many ways electrophoretic techniques appear ideal for quality monitoring of proteins and are thus well suited for the analysis of recombinant glycoproteins. The requirements of high throughput, comparative analysis and resolution of many variants are met by several electrophoretic techniques. A wide variety of such techniques are available to(More)
A simple and rapid capillary zone electrophoresis (CZE) method with UV detection has been developed for the determination of famotidine and its potential impurities in pharmaceutical formulations. The electrophoretic separation of these compounds was performed using a fused silica capillary and 37.5mmolL(-1) phosphate buffer pH 3.5 as the electrolyte. Under(More)
Lab-on-a-chip electrophoresis is becoming increasingly useful for protein analysis, thanks to recent developments in this field. This review is an update of the review we published at the start of 2008 [Peng, Y., Pallandre, A., Tran, N. T., Taverna, M., Electrophoresis 2008, 29, 156-177]. The superiority of polymers for the manufacture of analytical(More)
Analytical procedures, including capillary isoelectric focusing (CIEF), high-performance anion-exchange chromatography coupled to amperometric detection (HPAEC-PAD) and normal-phase chromatography with fluorescence detection are presented for the characterization of a highly O-glycosylated caseinomacropeptide (CGMP) and the detection of subtle glycosylation(More)
The potential of a series of newly synthesized poly(N,N-dimethylacrylamide) (PDMA) grafted polyacrylamide (PAM) copolymers (P(AM-PDMA)) as a replaceable separation medium for protein analysis was studied. A comparative study with and without copolymers was performed; the separation efficiency, analysis reproducibility and protein recovery proved that the(More)
Different models have been described in the literature to evaluate the total porosity of CEC columns: gravimetric, flow as well as conductivity-based methods. In this study, these models have been compared for two kinds of CEC columns: two mixed-mode silica particle stationary phases and different monolithic columns (acrylate or polystyrene(More)
Herein, highly defined monolithic beds were prepared in glass microchips by photopolymerization of ethylene glycol methacrylate phosphate (EGMP), acrylamide, and N,N'-methylenebisacrylamide (BAA) using an epifluorescence microscope as UV-irradiation source. Such a fast and easy method allowed precise control of (i) the edge shape, (ii) the location along(More)
