Abstract

Eletrochemical principles provide key techniques to promote the construction of bio/chemical microsystems of the next generation. There is a wealth of technology for the microfabrication of bio/chemical sensors. In addition, microfluidic transport in a network of flow channels, pH regulation, and automatic switching can be realized by electro-chemical principles. Since the basic components of the devices are electrode patterns, the integration of different components is easily achieved. With these techniques, bio/chemical assays that require the exchange of solutions can be conducted on a chip. Furthermore, autonomous microanalysis systems that can carry out necessary procedures are beginning to be realized. In this article, techniques developed in our group will be comprehensively introduced.
