Enzyme-release capillary as a facile enzymatic biosensing part for a capillary-assembled microchip.
A simple capillary enzymatic biosensor was developed. This was prepared by simply coating a dissolvable membrane containing enzyme/s on the inner wall of a square glass capillary. An easy measurement was carried out by capillary force sample introduction with concurrent enzyme release and a reaction with a certain substrate. Enzyme-release capillary (ERC) biosensors showed long-term storage stability of at least two weeks for a beta-galactoside derivative and glucose. Moreover, this could be integrated on a capillary-assembled microchip (CAs-CHIP) to broaden its multiple analyte sensing potential for clinical diagnostic applications. (+info)
