Abstract

We have succeeded for the first time to quantify biological compounds in human plasma using pillar array columns. A fast and quantitative method for the determination of branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) in human plasma using pressure-driven liquid chromatography on a chip was developed. BCAAs were firstly derivatized with 4-fluoro-7-nitro-2,1,3-benzoxadiazole (NBD-F), and then analysis of NBD-BCAAs was optimized to be finished in 100 s. With the help of an internal standard, the concentrations of BCAAs in human plasma samples were quantitatively determined. The developed method should be a useful tool for fast diagnosis in clinical field.
