Surface modification of nanoparticles for sustaining sensitivity of surface-enhanced raman spectrometric measurements in salinated environment
Týčová, Anna ; Přikryl, Jan ; Vaňhara, P. ; Klepárník, Karel ; Foret, František
Surface-enhanced Raman spectrometry (SERS) represents a powerful method for analysis of a broad spectrum of analytes ranging from inorganic ions to biomolecules of high complexity. It combines the potential\nof Raman spectrometry for a definite identification of an analyte with remarkable sensitivity achieved by the surface enhancement effect occurring on metal nanoparticles. While low ionic strength influences positively\nthe sensitivity of the SERS measurement, a higher level of inorganic salts leads to fast ruining of colloidal character, which completely devastates the effect of the surface enhancement. The common stabilization of\nnanoparticles by a layer of polymers has a negative impact on the SERS sensitivity since it shields the nanoparticle surface from the analytes. In this work, we aim at the development of the bi-ligand system of\nnanoparticles surface modification for improved stability of colloid in saline solution at sustaining the potential for sensitive SERS analyses. The proposed system relies on the binding of 3-mercaptopropionic acid and\nthiolated polyethylene glycol in a suitable ratio onto the nanoparticle surfaces. While the short chains of the acid sustain the accessibility of the surface for analytes, the polymeric structures act as a steric barrier\npreventing colloid aggregation.
Epitachophoretic separation and concentration of large volume samples
Voráčová, Ivona ; Foret, František ; Datinská, Vladimíra ; Novotný, Jakub ; Gheibi, P. ; Berka, J. ; Astier, Y.
There has been a growing interest in developing isotachophoretic protocols for concentration and purification of DNA as an alternative to the solid phase extraction protocols of DNA preparation. Also concentration of DNA from large volume samples is required. We have developed a new device suitable for separation, concentration and collection of ions from several milliliter sample volumes into microliter fractions. We have used a discontinuous electrolyte system comprising of the leading and terminating electrolytes utilized for concentration of samples containing DNA fragments. The method is simple, fast with high concentration factor and without extensive surface interactions.
Surface enhanced raman spectroscopy: Detection platforms for sample analysis with and without electrophoretic separation
Týčová, Anna ; Přikryl, Jan ; Foret, František ; Belder, D.
In this work we present two platforms of relatively simple construction for user-friendly sample detection via surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS). The first platform is designed for direct sample analysis and deals with hydrophilic spots array within a hydrophobic surface. The second presented platform aims on analysis of samples of higher complexity requiring separation step prior the detection. This is achived via microfluidic electrophoretic device with online SERS detection.
Hexahistidine-based tag for capillary electrophoresis-mass spektrometry analysis of oligosaccharides and N-linked glycans
Partyka, Jan ; Křenková, Jana ; Čmelík, Richard ; Foret, František
Various basic amino acids and peptides were studied as an alternative labels for capillary electrophoresis-mass spectrometry analysis of oligosaccharides. The hexahistidine-based label with big number of positive charges allowed to use effective and sensitive CE-MS analysis in positive ion mode both neutral and acidic glycans.
Affinity microfluidic chip based on packed microbeads
Novotný, Jakub ; Ostatná, Veronika ; Foret, František
In this project, a plastic device was fabricated using CNC milling in polycarbonate. Chip contains integrated pneumatic valves for flow control and allows for injection and stacking of beaded supports. Intended use of these supports is formation of packed affinity columns suitable for glycoprotein assays.
A Validatation of non-invasive method for diagnostic of cystic fibrosis based on ion ratios determined by CE-C4D
Ďurč, P. ; Lačná, J. ; Dosedělová, V. ; Foret, František ; Homoľa, L. ; Pokojová, E. ; Malá, M. ; Skřičková, J. ; Dastych, M. ; Vinohradská, H. ; Dřevínek, P. ; Skalická, V. ; Kubáň, Petr
A validation of novel approach for diagnosis of cystic fibrosis (CF) is presented. The method is very simple and fast, since for collection of samples, only wiping of the skin of forearm is needed. The collected sample is analyzed by capillary electrophoresis with contactless conductometric detection (CE-C4D). Ion ratios are determined as ratios of peak area of chloride anion and peak areas of selected cations. It is possible to distinguish between cystic fibrosis patients and healthy individuals when ion ratio is applied as diagnostic factor. In here, we present analytical parameters of developed method (limits of detection, limits of quantification, repeatability of migration times, repeatability of peak areas) and ROC curve, which reveals high sensitivity and specificity of the developed method.
