Two new prototype assembly methods have been evaluated for biosensors that combine an integrated circuit (IC) sensor with a culture chamber. The first method uses a poly-ethylene glycol (PEG) mould to mask the IC sensor during application of a room temperature vulcanising (RTV) silicone elastomer used to insulate the bondpads and bondwires. The second method utilises the 'partial encapsulation' service offered by Quik-Pak, USA. Both methods were shown to provide good electrical insulation and demonstrated biocompatibility with the NG108-15 cell line. These methods are particularly useful for the assembly of low-cost ICs with a small (4 mm2) sensor area.
