Abstract

Electrokinetic focusing and separation methods, specifically ion concentration polarization focusing (ICPF), provide a very powerful and easy to use analytical tool for several scientific fields. Nevertheless, the concentrated and separated analytes are effectively trapped inside the chip in picoliter volumes. In this article we propose an ICPF device that allows continuous and selective extraction of the focused analytes. A theoretical background is presented to understand the dynamics of the system and a 1D model was developed that describes the general behavior of the system. We demonstrate the selective extraction of three fluorescent model anionic analytes and we report selective extraction of the analytes at a 300-fold increased concentration.
