A low-flow reactor is described for the on-line monitoring of peptides digested with carboxypeptidase P by electrospray ionization. Two peptides were analyzed using this technique: glucagon (average MW 3482.8 Da), and apomyoglobin (average MW 16 951.5). Both peptides gave interpretable results. The first 19 amino acids of glucagon were successfully sequenced. Apomyoglobin yielded sequence information to the 30th amino acid with some gaps. At 300 nL/min, 50% of the first 30 amino acids were sequenced and at 1μL/min, 67% of the first 30 amino acids were observed.
