Microchip electrophoresis is widely used for microfluidics and has been studied extensively over the past decade. Translation of capillary electrophoresis methods from traditional capillary systems to a microchip platform provides rapid separation and easy quantitation of sample components. However, most...

This review describes the synthesis, physicochemical characteristics and application for studying carbohydrate-binding proteins of polyacrylamide (PAA) type neoglycoconjugates. An approach to the synthesis of conjugates based on the interaction of activated polyacrylic acid with omega-aminoalkyl glycosides has been developed. Both...
