Amperometric Detection of uric acid (UA) in 20mM sodium Borate buffer pH 8. Edet= -0.1V.
Screen-printed electrodes for uric acid detection
Uric acid is the major end product of purine metabolism. It is present in biological fluids such as urine and blood serum and the detection of anomalous values can be directly related to several disorders.
The uric acid sensor (Ref. UA10) is based on a screen-printed carbon electrode modified with the enzyme uricase.
Ceramic substrate: L34 x W10 x H0.5 mm
Electric contacts: Silver
The electrochemical cell consists on:
Working electrode: Ferrocyanide/Carbon/Uricase (4 mm diameter)
Auxiliary electrode: Carbon
Reference electrode: Silver
Screen-Printed Electrodes for uric acid detection are commercialised in 50 units packs, with a calibration curve provided per batch.
The sensors should be stored at 2-8ºC in the dark immediately upon received.
