Abstract

We immobilized adherent human embryonic kidney (HEK) cells--which are able to trace adenosine triphosphate (ATP)--inside a microfluidic free-flow electrophoresis (μFFE) chip in order to develop an integrated device combining separation and biosensing capabilities. HEK 293 cells loaded with fluorescent calcium indicators were used as a model system to enable the spatially and temporally resolved detection of ATP. The local position of a 20 μM ATP stream was successfully visualized by these cells during free-flow electrophoresis, demonstrating the on-line detection capability of this technique towards native, unlabeled compounds.
