Design, fabrication, and test of a sensor array for perspective biosensing in chronic pathologies
Biosensing for chronic pathologies requires the simultaneous monitoring of different parameters such as drug concentrations, inflammation status, temperature and pH. In this paper we discuss the design, fabrication and test of a sensor array hosting five biosensor platforms, a pH electrode and a temperature sensor. Different and reproducible nano-bio- functionalization can be obtained with high spatial resolution via selective electrodeposition of chitosan/MWCNT/enzyme solutions at the various electrodes. The array, completely fabricated with biocompatible materials, can be integrated with a CMOS integrated circuit and a remote powering coil for the realization of a fully implantable device.
