Abstract

We propose a new strategy for constructing a mediator-type biosensor as a Bio-MicroElectroMechanical Systems (BioMEMS) application. A vinylferrocene plasma-polymerized film (PPF) was deposited directly onto the surface of an electrode under dry conditions. The resulting redox film was extremely thin, adhered well onto a substrate (electrode), and had a highly crosslinked network structure. This technique, capable of polymeric deposition of any kind of monomer, can also serve the purpose of anti-fouling coating, or layer-to-layer interface creation. With a subsequent plasma process, additional polymeric layer of hydrophilic acetonitrile was superimposed onto the existing vinylferrocene-PPF surface to offer crucial features such that the wettability could be adjusted for a better electron transfer, and amino functional groups could be attached to immobilize a large amount of enzyme. Based upon this scheme, the device fabrication could be designed in a manner that the whole procedure was made up of dry wafer-handling processes, which is compatible with mass production. A prototype device was fabricated to have an array of needle-shaped amperometric micro-biosensors. The resultant thin polymer layer carried a large number of the mediator molecules, accomplishing a lower overpotential (+410 mV) and a rapid response time (<5 s). Stressing the advantages of the plasma polymerization process together with some additional features accomplished in our device fabrication, we would discuss new possibilities in the field of BioMEMS.
