Here, we report the first utilization of Hadamard transform CE (HTCE), a high-sensitivity, multiplexed CE technique, with photolytic optical gating sample injection of caged fluorescent labels for the detection of biologically important amines. Previous implementations of HTCE have relied upon photobleaching optical gating sample injection of fluorescent(More)
We have developed a chemical derivatization scheme for primary amines that couples the fast kinetic properties of o-phthaldialdehyde (OPA) with the photophysical properties of visible, high quantum yield, fluorescent dyes. In this reaction, OPA is used as a cross-linking reagent in the labeling reaction of primary amines in the presence of a fluorescent(More)
We report a new approach for collecting and deconvoluting the data in Hadamard transform capillary electrophoresis, referred to as fast Hadamard transform capillary electrophoresis (fHTCE). Using fHTCE, total analysis times can be reduced by up to 48% per multiplexed separation compared to conventional Hadamard transform capillary electrophoresis (cHTCE)(More)
We report an online, optical injection interface for capillary zone electrophoresis (CZE) based upon photophysical activation of a caged, fluorogenic label covalently attached to the target analyte. This injection interface allows online analysis of biomolecular systems with high temporal resolution and high sensitivity. Samples are injected onto the(More)
We report the utilization of a high power UV light-emitting diode for fluorescence detection (UV-LED-IF) in CE separations. CE-UV-LED-IF allows analysis of a range of environmentally and biologically important compounds, including PAHs and biogenic amines, including neurotransmitters, amino acids, proteins, and peptides, that have been derivatized with(More)
