Latex beads for binding negatively charged protein?

Hmmmm. What about chemically activated reactive ones? Or might bifiunctional
coupling reagents (see e.g. Pierce's catalogue) do the job?
Could activated sepahrose beads or some microspheres pinched from the
combinatorial freaks (Sigma, Novachem, others) be a considerable alternative?
Just some thoughts.
