A microfabricated device has been developed in which electrospray ionization is performed directly from the corner of a rectangular glass microchip. The device allows highly efficient electrokinetically driven separations to be coupled directly to a mass spectrometer (MS) without the use of external pressure sources or the insertion of capillary spray tips. An electrokinetic-based hydraulic pump is integrated on the chip that directs eluting materials to the monolithically integrated spray tip. A positively charged surface coating, PolyE-323, is used to prevent surface interactions with peptides and proteins and to reverse the electroosmotic flow in the separation channel. The device has been used to perform microchip CE-MS analysis of peptides and proteins with efficiencies over 200,000 theoretical plates (1,000,000 plates/m). The sensitivity and stability of the microfabricated ESI source were found to be comparable to that of commercial pulled fused-silica capillary nanospray sources.
