The effect of Vitamin C for point-of-care blood analysis applications using an electrochemical biosensor Conference Paper uri icon


  • Abstract: This paper reports on an experimental study of the ability to use ascorbic acid as a reducing agent for a clozapine (CLZ) biosensor based on redox cycling electrochemistry. Ascorbic acid, which is naturally present in the blood serum, was related to the current reducing mediator, hexaammineruthenium (III)(Ru). The performance of these two candidate compounds was compared using cyclic voltammetry in the range of-0.4 to 0.7 V at scan rates of 10 mV/s. Results from bare gold electrodes indicate an electrochemical interference on …
