Enzymatic in-capillary derivatization for glucose determination by electrophoresis with spectrophotometric detection.


PMID 18383014

Abstract

The following paper compares several procedures of in-capillary bienzymatic derivatization with regard to glucose determination with the use of glucose oxidase and horseradish peroxidase. The procedures discussed below include continuous contact in the capillary, plug-plug injection, and sequential injection with incubation in the capillary inlet. The reaction of hydrogen peroxide catalyzed by peroxidase was performed using two different substrates. The best results were achieved for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, reduced disodium salt (NADH) acting both as a chromogenic reagent and a substrate for peroxidase, while the method employed was sequential injection and incubation at the capillary inlet. The LOD was estimated to be 25 nM with a linear response up to 0.1 microM.
