Preparation of poly(methyl acrylate) microfluidic chips surface-modified by hyperbranched polyamide ester and their application in the separation of biomolecules



Preparation of poly(methyl acrylate) microfluidic chips surface-modified by hyperbranched polyamide ester and their application in the separation of biomolecules



Se Pu 30(5): 440-444



The surface of poly (methyl acrylate) (PMMA) microfluidic chips were modified using hyperbranched polyamide ester via chemical bonding. The contact angles of the modified chips were measured. The surface morphology was observed by scanning electron microscope (SEM) and stereo microscope. The results showed that the surface of the modified chips was coated by a dense, uniform, continuous, hydrophilic layer of hyperbranched polyamide ester. The hydrophilic of the chip surface was markedly improved. The contact angle of the chips modified decreased from 89.9 degrees to 29.5 degrees. The electro osmotic flow (EOF) in the modified microchannel was lower than that in the unmodified microchannel. Adenosine and L-lysine were detected and separated via the modified PMMA microfluidic chips. Compared with unmodified chips, the modified chips successfully separated the two biomolecules. The detection peaks were clear and sharp. The separation efficiencies of adenosine and L-lysine were 8.44 x 10(4) plates/m and 9.82 x 10(4) plates/m respectively, and the resolutions (Rs) was 5.31. The column efficiencies and resolutions of the modified chips were much higher than those of the unmodified chips. It was also observed that the modified chips possessed good reproducibility of migration time. This research may provide a new and effective method to improve the hydrophilicity of the PMMA surface and the application of PMMA microfluidic chips in the determination of trace biomolecules.
