Separation of complex carbohydrates is a rapidly developing area in capillary electrophoresis (CE). This method can be applied easily for fingerprinting labeled oligosaccharides, and it yields rapid, high-efficiency separations. A high degree of automation and microliter-level sample volume requirements make this method ideal for unattended and limited-sample environments. Scientists can use CE-based carbohydrate analysis to determine molar ratios and degree of polymerization of oligosaccharides and to detect changes in the extent or nature of the oligosaccharide distribution (fingerprinting) in modern biotechnology and food products.
