Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The pressure output of a pump cannot be increased simply by connecting several of them in series. This barrier is eliminated with the micro pump developed in this work. The pump is actually an assembly of a number of fundamental pump units connected in series. The maximum pressure output of this pump assembly is directly proportional to the number of serially-connected pump units. Theoretically, one can always enhance the pressure output by adding more pump units in the assembly, but in reality the upper pressure is constrained by the micro tees or unions joining the pump components. With commercially available micro tees and unions, pressures of more than 1200 bars have been achieved. We have recently experimented using open capillaries to build this pump, but many capillaries have to be utilized in parallel to produce adequate flow to drive HPLC separations. In this paper, we synthesize polymer monoliths inside 75-um-i.d. capillaries, use these monoliths to assemble miniaturized pumps, characterize the performance of these pumps, and employ these pumps for HPLC separations of intact proteins. By tuning the experimental parameters for monolith preparations, we obtain both negatively- and positively-charged sub-micron capillary channels conveniently. Each monolith in a 75-um-i.d. capillary is equivalent to several thousands of open capillaries.
