Affinity Viscosimetry Sensor for Enzyme Free Detection of Glucose in a Micro-Bioreaction Chamber
With the growing demand of miniaturization of cell cultivation a new approach towards measuring and sensing bio-analytes needs to be made due to the problem of small volumes (less than 150μl) containing small amounts of analytes. Most of the available glucose sensors monitor the glucose concentration with the help of enzymes, which become very inaccurate in terms of long time measurement and uses (i.e. consumes) glucose during the measurement becoming not available anymore for the cells. Therefore, we focused on applying an enzyme-free glucose sensor based on a microelectromechanical system (MEMS).
