Miniaturised electrochemical systems
Microelectrode systems are gaining popularity for their flexibility and portability thanks to the continuous miniaturisation of instrumental and computing technology. Advances in microfabrication technology over the past decade has led to the development of fast, sensitive and selective electrochemical sensors.
These types of sensors have been further miniaturised and integrated into systems and offer numerous applications in clinical diagnosis, environmental monitoring and food analysis. In the Life Science Interface group at Tyndall there are a number of researchers working on several projects that utilize miniaturised electrochemical sensing systems.
