Biosensor setup

A typical biosensor recording setup will need to have a way of positioning the biosensor next to the sample or tissue and a potentiostat to control the potential on the biosensor and record the currents generated by the enzymatic reactions at the biosensor surface.

This schematic shows some of the key features:

  • A manipulator to hold and position the sarissaprobe®
  • An Ag/AgCl reference electrode in the recording chamber
  • A potentiostat, which is connected to both the sarissaprobe® and the reference electrode

Making the correct connections from the electrodes to the potentiostat is very important, and the instructions supplied with the potentiostat that you use will tell you how to do this.
