The article discusses the use of liquid-core waveguides in the integration of functional components into capillary electrophoresis systems. A liquid-core waveguide functions as the optical component and flow conduit in refractive index conditions. In capillary electrophoresis, liquid-core waveguide serves as a separation channel. It was revealed that Teflon AF-coated silica capillary-based liquid-core waveguide has potential in the miniaturization of capillary electrophoresis systems with photoluminescence detection.

    The use of pure nonaqueous solvents in capillary electrophoresis (CE) can alter the separation selectivity and enhance the solubility of hydrophobic compounds and enables the use of higher voltages. However, control of the electro-osmotic flow (EOF) is essential. In this work, we report the use...

    The most widely used method for the biochemical screening of oligosaccharidoses is the analysis of the urinary oligosaccharide pattern by thin-layer chromatography on silica gel plates. However, this method is not always sensitive enough, and it is extremely time-consuming and laborious. In this...
