Abstract

We have developed an easy and versatile method for the surface modification of the microchannels in polymer microchips. Our method employed N-5-azido-2- nitrobenzoyloxysuccinimide, a photo-reactive azide, for the surface modification. Unlike the previously developed methods, it allows us to immobilize biomolecules without sacrificing their activity as well as to coat polymers which inhibit protein adsorption. Moreover, it does not require specific equipment, highly toxic chemicals, or labor-intensive procedures.
