Potentially implantable bioelectronic devices for biosensing and biofuel cell applications
Malmö Univerity Health and Society, None, Malmö 20506, Sweden
The fabrication and characterisation of potentially implantable bioelectronic devices,1 e.g., biosensors and biofuel cells, is important for different biomedical applications. Since the topic delineated in the title is very broad the lecture will mostly be focused on glucose sensitive amperometric biosensors and glucose/oxygen biofuel cells operating in human physiological fluids. Nowadays these devices have been designed for and tested in both in vitro and in vivo situations,2-5 and also practically exploited.6-7
Firstly, major classifications of biodevices will be described and basic mechanisms of their function including useful mathematical apparatus will be given. Secondly, historical aspects on their fabrication, investigation, and application will be presented.8-10 This would include recently designed biodevices based on nanotechnological achievements, which were characterised in detail with the help of surface electrochemistry, ellipsometry, AFM, and SEM. During the lecture significant attention will be also devoted to proper surfacemodification procedures to produce bionanostrucutres serving as sensitive, linear, and stable biosensors, as well as bioanodes and biocathodes of efficient and stable biofuel cells. Finally, further perspectives in the field of potentially implantable bioelectronics will be discussed.
