I was wondering whether there is some information about the possible effect that shear stress forces in the microfluidic cell during SPR analysis might have on the conformation of the injected protein....

The only molecule I know that changes under shear stress is von Willebrand Factor (vWF).
You can search PubMed under 'shear stress vwf'.
