This method uses precolumn and reverse phase C18 column and UV-VIS detector with deuterium lamp, with a mobile phase consisting of 80% acetonitrile, 3% methanol (100 mM ammonium acetate, 0.1% triethylamine), and 15% dioxan. The mobile phase is pumped through the system by a flow of 1.5 mL/min with maximum pressure of 350 Kgf and the minimum of 0.
After dehydration in a graded series of ethanol, the specimens were infiltrated with dioxan overnight.
To 5 mg of F-21-HS, 200 [micro]L of dimethyl formamide, 200 [micro]L of dioxan, and 100 [micro]L of distilled water containing 10 mg of N-hydroxysuccinimide and 20 mg of 1-ethyl-3-(3-dimethyl-amino-propyl) carbodiimide-HCL were added; the reaction mixture was vortex-mixed and kept overnight at 4 [degrees]C.
