Abstract

This paper reports on an implantable glucose biofuel cell generating electric power from body fluids, such as blood. By the use of enzyme as an anodic catalyst and vitamin K3 as a harmless electron-mediator, we can realize the power generation from biofluids. We assembled a microfluidic biofuel cell to evaluate cell performance and stability in biofluids.
