We have previously reported a local redox cycling-based electrochemical (LRC-EC) system for the incorporation of many electrochemical sensors into a small chip device. In the present study, a new type of LRC-EC chip device was fabricated for the detection of a droplet array. To detect electrochemically redox compounds in droplets, Pt pseudo-reference/counter electrodes were incorporated into the individual sensors of the LRC-EC chip device. Cyclic voltammetry for the LRC-EC chip device with internal Pt pseudo-reference electrodes indicated well-defined voltammograms based on redox cycling for the individual sensor points. The device was successfully applied to the addressable detection of alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activity of HeLa cells in single droplets on the sensor points. Therefore, the LRC-EC chip device is considered to be a useful device for the bioanalysis of droplet systems.
