Electrochemical Analytic Chip
Mar 7, 2023
The measurement of voltage and current is essential in electrochemical analysis for determining chemical compounds in solution and their concentrations. Electrodes made of gold or platinum, in combination with reference electrodes such as Ag/AgCl , are often used for this application. A typical disadvantage of conventional measurement setups is the need for at least 20 ml of analyte, which requires large electrodes. As a consequence, the electrodes can be expensive and have to be cleaned periodically with substantial effort. Additionally, contaminated electrodes might cause measurement errors, where the replacement of electrodes made of precious metals is costly and environmentally unfriendly. The analytic chips developed by IPMS can overcome these issues and are especially suited for potentiometry and voltammetry measurements.
