The successful integration of electrochemical biosensors and instrumentation is essential in the development of a repeatable and reliable measurement platform for research and commercially viable solutions. Uniscan Instruments have been involved in the development of instrumentation for electrochemical biosensors for more than a decade in both research and commercial environments. During this time many bespoke instruments have been developed together with standard off the shelf instruments which have integrated features and functionality specifically for the development of electrochemical biosensors.
The practical issues which occur in the electrochemical biosensor development process are often similar from one project to the next across a wide range of measurement applications. The fabrication of the sensor its physical and electrical connection to the electronics, the development of measurement and analysis software, field trials, high throughput QA and repeatability testing for statistical verification and the development of a low cost end user product are some of the issues which occur in most electrochemical biosensor projects.
The solution may also require peripheral control or measurement of external parameters such as temperature or humidity, which may also be required in the implementation of the measurement algorithm.
The aim of this talk is to illustrate by example how these common issues have been considered and the practical solutions which have been implemented to create viable solutions which enhance the process of successful electrochemical biosensor system development.
