22-0054 Closed Bipolar Electrode Based Biosensors

  • A closed bipolar system that mitigates interference from oxygen.
  • Low power requirements allows for use in continuous monitoring applications.
  • Using open circuit potential, the system can be miniaturized through the use of electrodes as small as 25 micrometers in diameter.

Advantages

  • A closed bipolar system that mitigates interference from oxygen.
  • System has low power requirements.
  • Use in continuous monitoring applications.
  • Can be miniaturized using electrodes as small as 25 micrometers in diameter.
  • Less expensive than optical systems.
  • Signal can be amplified across the bipolar electrode.
  • Mitigates interfering substrates by separation of reaction and measurement chamber.

Potential Applications

A continuous monitoring configuration would allow for use in wearable devices, while the system could also be configured for use in point of care settings (ex. test strip).
