Glycan Arrays with Direct MS Readout

Immobilization of fluorous tagged molecules onto a fluorous surface has been conducted by several groups for the formation of microarrays.  Generally the surface has been a fluorous modified glass slide.  Solutions containing the fluorous tagged probe are spotted on the … Continue reading
