A microinjection process is described that involves the photodynamically-assisted puncture of an animal cell membrane by means of a brief and partial degeneration resulting from cell membrane damage. The ratio of dye-injected rat pheochromocytoma cells that became detached three and six days after photodynamically-assisted microinjection was 9%; however, it(More)
We report on an amperometric biosensor that is based on a nanocomposite of carbon nanotubes (CNT), a nano-thin plasma-polymerized film (PPF), and glucose oxidase (GOx) as an enzyme model. A mixture of the GOx and a CNT film is sandwiched with 10-nm-thick acetonitrile PPFs. Under PPF layer was deposited onto a sputtered gold electrode. To facilitate the(More)
We report a novel approach to fabrication of an amperometric biosensor with an enzyme, a plasma-polymerized film (PPF), and carbon nanotubes (CNTs). The CNTs were grown directly on an island-patterned Co/Ti/Cr layer on a glass substrate by microwave plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition. The as-grown CNTs were subsequently treated by nitrogen plasma,(More)
We report on a novel fabrication approach of amperometric biosensor based on multilayer films containing carbon nanotubes (CNT), a nano-thin plasma-polymerized film (PPF), electron transfer mediator phenothiazine (PT), and enzyme glucose dehydrogenase (GDH). The configuration of the electrochemical electrode is sequentially composed of sputtered gold,(More)
We describe a method for creating a mediator-containing interface between an enzyme and an electrode, achieving simpler and more reliable immobilization of the enzyme with the enhanced detection sensitivity. A nanothin polymer film containing a redox mediator, made of dimethylaminomethylferrocene, was plasma-deposited directly onto a glucose(More)
We demonstrate the diffusion mode of various redox chemical species through a plasma-polymerized nanothin coating with nanometer-sized pores on a sputtered platinum (Pt) electrode. In this work, hexamethyldisiloxane plasma-polymerized films (PPFs) were added onto the sputtered platinum film, both of which were sequentially deposited in the same vacuum(More)
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(More)
The structure and biosensor characteristics of complex between glucose oxidase (GOD) and plasma-polymerized nanothin film (PPF), in which the thickness is several nanometers, were investigated by atomic force microscopy (AFM) and electrochemical measurement. The GOD molecules were densely adsorbed onto the PPF surface treated by nitrogen plasma and the(More)
