Covalent modified hydrophilic polymer brushes onto poly(dimethylsiloxane) microchannel surface for electrophoresis separation of amino acids.

A new environmentally friendly method is developed for preventing nonspecific biomolecules from adsorption on poly(dimethylsiloxane) (PDMS) surface via in situ covalent modification. o-[(N-Succinimdyl)succiny]-o'-methyl-poly(ethylene glycol) (NSS-mPEG) was covalently grafted onto PDMS microchannel surface that was pretreated by air-plasma and silanized with… CONTINUE READING
