Gold screen-printed electrode versus classic gold electrode

At Zimmer and Peacock we have a pragmatic view on electrochemistry, screen-printed electrodes and biosensors.


We understand that when converting a lab assay into a manufactured biosensor one has to understand that there are compromises between beautiful electrochemical data, and a sensor that both works and does so at a cost that the market can afford.


In the adjacent image we show a cyclic voltammogram obtained on a screen-printed electrode from Zimmer and Peacock at 100 mVs-1 in 50 mM H2SO4 vs Ag/AgCl.

The electrode used is from the ZP range found by clicking the button below.

In the adjacent image we show a classic voltammogram from a gold electrode with an external platinum counter electrode and an external Ag/AgCl reference electrode.

At Zimmer and Peacock we understand the differences between classical gold electrodes and screen-printed gold electrodes, and  are able to advise on how to take an assay developed in the lab on a pristine gold electrode and translate it onto a real-world mass produced electrode, whilst doing so at a cost that the market can afford.

If you are interested in translating your lab developed assay into a commercial sensor or biosensor please don't hesitate to contact Zimmer and Peacock.. 2019
