Analysis of Oligosaccharides by Capillary Electrophoresis
Carbohydrate analysis has a special feature which should be capable of high-resolution separation, because oligosaccharides derived from glycoconjugates are usually composed of a complex mixture of carbohydrates including isomers and homologues. Capillary electrophoresis (CE) is one of the most powerful techniques in terms of resolving power and is applied to the analysis of various carbohydrates from glycoconjugates. A combination of CE and laser-induced fluorescence (LIF) detection enables to detect even fmol (10−15 mol) to amol (10−18 mol) of carbohydrates. Multiplexed CE systems and multichannel microfluidic devices have been developed for high-throughput research and are applied to clinical analysis of serum glycome.
