Fiber optic illumination of a poly(dimethylsiloxane) sheath flow cuvette for diode laser induced fluorescence detection in capillary electrophoresis



Fiber optic illumination of a poly(dimethylsiloxane) sheath flow cuvette for diode laser induced fluorescence detection in capillary electrophoresis



Electrophoresis 36(4): 502-508



A Tee configuration sheath flow cuvette with square cross-section channels has been produced in PDMS for CE detection. The output of a 1.4 W laser diode operating at 450 nm was focused onto the 300 μm core of a 370 μm od fiber optic whose end was inserted into one arm of the Tee for LIF. The optimal configuration had the fiber optic positioned 500 μm downstream from the intersection and the end of the 35 cm 50 μm id 365 μm od capillary just outside the intersection and in the leg of the Tee, resulting in a 90° configuration. Detection limits of 50 and 3 pM and linear calibrations of at least three orders of magnitude were obtained for Lucifer Yellow and fluorescein, respectively.
