Applicability of polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) for easy and rapid fabrication of enzyme sensor chips, based on electrochemical detection, is examined. The sensor chip consists of PDMS substrate with a microfluidic channel fabricated in it, and a glass substrate with enzyme-modified microelectrodes. The two substrates are clamped together between plastic plates. The sensor chip has shown no leakage around the microelectrodes under continuous solution flow (34μl/min). Amperometric response of the sensor chips developed in this work suggest that various types of enzyme sensors can be designed by using PDMS microfluidic channels.
