Side-entry excitation and detection of square capillary array electrophoresis for DNA sequencing

Side-entry excitation and detection of square capillary array electrophoresis for DNA sequencing

Journal of Chromatography A 853(1-2): 359-369, Aug 20

In high throughput DNA sequencing based on capillary electrophoresis, efficient coupling of the laser to each capillary is a challenge. Our group previously reported two multiple point irradiation schemes. The present work describes a more efficient excitation and detection method in which the laser light propagates through the capillary array without undergoing a serious reduction in power. An array of square capillaries (340 microns O.D. x 75 microns I.D.) was sandwiched between two fused-silica plates with an index-matching solution in between. The light was directed into the channel across the capillary array from the side. DNA sequences of PGEM/U from 24 capillaries were obtained even with a relatively low-power laser. The excitation scheme can be scaled up to hundreds of capillaries to achieve high-speed, high-throughput DNA sequencing, genetic typing and drug screening.
