We have developed a new leakage current microsensor by using simpler planar processes than Si-surface-bulk micromachining processes used in the previous microwell structure. This sensor fabrication and structure can easily make a target solution volume smaller than μL with excellent immobilization of the droplet and intact biomolecules as sensing elements, as a result, reduce effectively the background noise current in the microsensor and improve reproducibility of the results. The leakage current due to the biochemical interaction was successfully evaluated. Cole-Cole plots from the impedance analysis also show quantitative difference between with and without the interaction, depending on the charge-transfer impedance.
