A transient finite-element model has been developed to simulate an extracellular action potential recording in a tissue slice by a planar microelectrode array. The thin-film approximation of the active neuron membrane allows the simulation within single finite-element software of the intracellular and extracellular potential fields. In comparison with a(More)
Biotinylated bacteria were immobilized onto biotin/avidin modified electrode surfaces. Firstly, an electrospotting deposition method, followed by fluorescence microscopy, showed that bacteria were specifically grafted onto a gold surface. Fluorescence intensity versus the quantity of bacteria deposited on the surface was correlated, allowing determination(More)
This contribution describes new composite carbon paste electrodes (CPEs) for the determination of phenolic compounds. The composite CPEs were prepared by in situ generation of polypyrrole (PPy) within a paste containing the enzyme polyphenol oxidase (PPO). The best paste composition (enzyme/pyrrole monomer/carbon particles/Nujol) was determined for a model(More)
In the field of DNA sensing, DNA hybridisation detection is generally performed by fluorescence microscopy. However, fluorescence instrumentation is difficult to miniaturise in order to produce fully integrated DNA chips. In this context, electrochemical detection of DNA hybridisation may avoid this limitation. Therefore, the use of DNA intercalators is(More)
Neural interfacing still requires highly stable and biocompatible materials, in particular for in vivo applications. Indeed, most of the currently used materials are degraded and/or encapsulated by the proximal tissue leading to a loss of efficiency. Here, we considered boron doped diamond microelectrodes to address this issue and we evaluated the(More)
Boron doped nanocrystalline diamond is known as a remarkable material for the fabrication of sensors, taking advantage of its biocompatibility, electrochemical properties, and stability. Sensors can be fabricated to directly probe physiological species from biofluids (e.g. blood or urine), as will be presented. In collaboration with electrophysiologists and(More)
Thin film technology takes more and more importance in the development of biomedical devices dedicated to functional neurostimulation. Our research about the design of implant neurostimulating electrode is oriented toward thin film cuff electrodes based on a polyimide substrate covered by a chromium/gold/Pt film. The chromium/gold sputtered film serves as(More)
Multi-electrode sensor arrays are made of soft and wet materials not easily examined by most microscopic techniques. In this paper, we have demonstrated that low-vacuum scanning electron microscopy (LVSEM) and energy-dispersive X-ray analysis (EDX) are adequate for studying the hydration, swelling, and possible delamination of multi-electrode sensor arrays.(More)
We report on the fabrication and characterization of an 8 × 8 multichannel Boron Doped Diamond (BDD) ultramicro-electrode array (UMEA). The device combines both the assets of microelectrodes, resulting from conditions in mass transport from the bulk solution toward the electrode, and of BDD's remarkable intrinsic electrochemical properties. The UMEAs were(More)
In this paper, we present different ways to detect DNA hybridization on a solid support. The grafting chemistry is based on the electro-controlled copolymerization of a pyrrole-modified oligonucleotide and pyrrole. This process allows an easy functionalization of conducting materials. Three kind of devices were studied: silicon chips bearing an array of(More)
