Electrochemical Sensors

Electrochemical sensors are a subclass of chemical sensors where the electrode is used as a transducer—converting a chemical response into a signal detectable by electrical instrumentation. Electrochemical sensors have been of increased interest in research and development for molecule detection in an array of fields from gas sensing to biomarker monitoring. The design of these electrodes is heavily dependent on the intended application, making material customization and configuration incredibly important factors in the development of new sensor technologies.

Prominent Sensor Application Fields:

  • Pharmaceutical Research and Development
  • Environmental Monitoring
  • Medical Devices/Diagnostics
  • Safety
  • Food Analysis

Screen printed electrodes are frequently used to develop electrochemical sensors and offer many advantages:

  • Economical
  • Easy to use
  • Robust
  • Highly selective
  • High sensitivity
  • Low Volumes
  • Miniaturized size

Metrohm offers not only a large catalog of screen printed and interdigitated electrodes for sensor development, but also flow cell accessories, potentiostat/galvanostats (both portable and stationary), and a range of spectroelectrochemical solutions.

Webinar on Demand: Electrochemical Sensors: Research to Real World Applications

In this webinar, Dr. Kevin Pavlick from Innolyzer Labs will shared his experience developing a dedicated sensor. His case study covered the sensor from R&D to real-world quantification of hydrogen sulfide in an industrial environment.
