Microchip technology is an HTS method that can be used to detect and analyze a large number of biomolecules, including proteins, nucleic acids, and glycans. In the case of glycan analysis, microchip technology detects the interaction between glycans and specific molecules through a variety of chemical reactions. Specifically, a series of molecules, such as antibodies, metal ions, and fluorescent probes, are first pre-immobilized in the microchip, which can specifically bind to different parts of the glycan molecule. Then, the glycan molecules in the sample to be examined will react with the molecules immobilized on the chip to form a chemical complex. These complexes can be quantitatively analyzed and imaged immediately thereafter using laser scanning or other imaging techniques. By analyzing the changes in the number and geometric position of the chemical complexes in different samples, information such as the type and content of glycans in each sample can be determined.
