CHARACTERIZATION OF ELECTRICAL PROPERTIES OF 3D PRINTED BIOSENSORS WITH VARIOUS ELECTRODE GEOMETRIES
Keywords:Electrochemical biosensors, 3D printing, Electrodes, Electrode geometry, Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy
This study explores the design and fabrication process of 3D-printed electrodes for electrochemical biosensors that detect ion concentration. The 3D printing process enables the production of electrodes with complex shapes. To determine their performance, cyclic voltammetry, and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy were used to test the electrodes’ ability to detect changes in ion concentration. The results reveal the impact of electrode geometry on biosensor performance.
