Electrochemical Biochip for Applications to Wireless and Batteryless Monitoring of Free-Moving Mice

A multi-sensing platform for applications in wireless and batteryless monitoring of free-moving small animals is presented in this paper. The proposed platform hosts six sensors: four biosensors for sensing of both disease biomarkers and therapeutic compounds, and two further sensors (T and pH) for biosensor calibration. Electrodeposition of Multi-Walled Carbon Nanotubes (MWCNTs) and the subsequent functionalization with proper enzymes is used to assure sensitivity and specificity in electrochemical biosensing. The realized sensors are demonstrated to be capable of measuring several parameters: lactate with a sensitivity of 77±26 μA/mM· cm<sup>2</sup> and a limit of detection (LOD) of 4±1 μM; glucose with a sensitivity of 63±15 μA/mM· cm<sup>2</sup> and a LOD of 8±2 μM; Etoposide (a well known anti-cancer agent) with a sensitivity of 0.15±0.04 mA/mM· cm<sup>2</sup> and a LOD of 4±1 μM; Open Circuit Potential (OCP) measurements are used on a Pt/IrOx junction to sense pH with a sensitivity of around -75±5 mV/pH; while a Pt resistive thermal device is used to measure physiological temperature-range with an average sensitivity of 0.108±0.001 kΩ/°C.
