Rogers, K R., A. B. Apostol, AND W C. Brumley. CAPILLARY ELECTROPHORESIS IMMUNOASSAY FOR 2,4-DICHLOROPHENOXYACETIC ACID. ANALYTICAL LETTERS 33(3):443-453, (2000).
A capillary electrophoresis (CE) immunoassay format for 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) is demonstrated. A fluorescent labeled 2,4-D analog competes with the analyte of interest for a finite number of binding sites provided by anti-2,4-D monoclonal antibodies. CE then provides a means of separating and measuring both the free and antibody-bound fluorescent tracer using laser-induced fluorescence detection. For this assay format, the amount of free tracer is a sensitive indicator for the concentration of analyte present in the sample. A sequential injection format allows the rapid analysis of a small number of samples. The dynamic concentration range for 2,4-D in either buffer or river water is 5 ppb to 1000 ppb.
