Microspike biosensors are minimally invasive sensors which can be used to measure metabolites, biomarkers and drugs in the interstitial fluid. The microspike substrate material is polycarbonate. The metallic electrodes can be functionalised with a variety of coatings. The devices, developed by a team of scientists at Imperial College London, have been functionalised for sensing glucose, lactate and theophylline. The electrode coating is offered as standard with a gold (3 electrodes) and silver (1 electrode) version or optionally with 3 platinum and 1 silver electrode. Platinum reduces the noise in the measurements and is more stable. Microspikes can be supplied in packs of 10 or 50 and come complete with nuts and bolts for electrical connections.
