Abstract

The biosensor has an extended gate field effect transistor (EGFET) structure and comprises a metal oxide semiconductor field effect transistor (MOSFET) on a semiconductor substrate, a sensing unit comprising a substrate, a silicon dioxide layer on the substrate, a tin oxide layer on the silicon dioxide layer, and a urease layer immobilized on the tin oxide layer, and a conductive wire connecting the MOSFET and the sensing unit.

Description

    BACKGROUND
  • [0001]
    The invention relates to a biosensor, and in particular to a biosensor having an extended gate field effect transistor (EGFET) structure with a urea layer immobilized on a tin oxide layer.
  • [0002]
    The first ion sensitive field effect transistor (ISFET) was fabricated by P. Bergveld in 1970. The ISFET unlike the MOSFET has no metal gate electrode. Silicon dioxide (SiO2) was first used as a pH sensitive membrane for the ISFET. Subsequently, Al2O3, Si3N4, Ta2O5, and SnO2 were used as a pH sensitive membrane due to their higher pH response.
  • [0003]
    The earliest suggestion of the concept of an enzyme modified FET (EnFET) sensor device appears to be that of Janata and Moss. They described a penicillin responsive sensor which comprises a matched pH-responsive ISFET pair, one device having an overlying, active gate film of the cross-linked albumin-penicillinase, and the other having a reference gate membrane of only cross-linked albumin. When penicillin was present in the analysis, the penicillinase present in the active gate material catalyzed the hydrolysis of penicillin to penicilloic acid, which released protons and created a local decrease in pH, whereas the reference gate remained unaffected. Several applications for the EnFET, such as the glucose, urea, acetylcholine, and alcohol exist.

    A variety of materials are known to be capable of serving as the sensing film of an ISFETs, such as, Al2O3, Si3N4, a-WO3, a-C:H, and a-Si:H, etc. The manufacture of sensing films is typically accomplished by deposition, such as, sputtering or plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD), therefore, the cost is relatively high and the time required for thin film fabrication is long.

    The biosensor according to an embodiment of the invention is illustrated in FIGS. 1a-1 c. Referring to FIG. 1 a, the biosensor 110 having an extended gate field effect transistor structure comprises a metal oxide semiconductor field effect transistor, a sensing unit, and a conductive wire.
  • [0030]
    The metal oxide semiconductor field effect transistor 112 (shown as an electric circuit) is on a semiconductor substrate (not shown) which may be N- or P-type.
  • [0031]
    The sensing unit comprises a substrate 101, a silicon dioxide layer 102, a tin oxide layer 103, and a urease layer 109. The substrate can be a conductive glass, such as an indium tin oxide (ITO) glass. The silicon dioxide is formed on the substrate with a thickness of 1000 Å to 2000 Å and may function as a buffer allowing deposition of tin oxide on the glass. Tin oxide layer has a thickness of 2000 Å to 3000 Å and is formed on the silicon dioxide layer. The substrate, the silicon dioxide layer, and the tin oxide layer may available from a commercial product, such as SnO2/SiO2/glass, Kuanghua Development technical corporation, Taiwan, under the trademark TO-3030, for facilitating manufacture. The urease layer is formed by photopolymerization of a mixture of a photosensitive polymer and urease in a phosphate buffer solution. The photosensitive polymer and the urease are in a ratio ranging from 30:1 to 5:1, preferably 25:1 to 15:1, and more preferably about 20:1 by weight. Furthermore, an insulating layer, for example, epoxy resin, may be formed on the surface of the sensing unit to seal the sensing device but expose part of the urease layer for the contact with the tested solution (not shown) and part of the conductive wire for electrical connect.

    Briefly, the measurement of ion concentration of an acid or base solution is attained by transforming the charge of hydrogen ions adsorbed on the sensing film of the extended gate field effect transistor into electrical signals, using the signals to control the width of the channel of MOSFET, and then determining the concentration of the tested hydrogen ions by the magnitude of the electric current.
  • [0034]
    In the determination of the urea concentration of a solution, when urea reacts with the urease on the sensing film, OH or H+ ions are produced through hydrolysis, the EGFET will change voltage corresponding to the pH value of the solution, and thus the urea concentration can be known from the electric signals produced by the ISFET. The hydrolysis of urea is as follows:
  • [0035]
    In the method of manufacturing a sensing unit according to an embodiment of the invention, the steps of providing a conductive substrate, forming a silicon dioxide layer on the conductive substrate, and forming a tin oxide layer on the silicon dioxide layer can be accomplished by simply providing a commercially available SnO2/SiO2/glass 106 product to simplify manufacturing and save time and reduce cost, or accomplished step by step as desired. The tin oxide layer can be deposited on the silicon dioxide layer by chemical vapor deposition (CVD). The deposition temperature may be 250 to 600° C., preferably 580 to 600° C. The layer has a thickness of preferably 0.2 to 0.3 μm and a resistance of 20 to 30 Ω/□. For example, tin tetrachloride and water are used to produce tin oxide layer. The reaction is shown as follows:
  • SnCl4+2H2O→SnO2+4HCl
  • [0036]
    The silicon dioxide layer can be deposited on the substrate by CVD at a temperature of preferably 580 to 600° C. The thickness is preferably 100 to 300Å.
  • [0037]
    Referring to FIG. 1b, after the SnO2/SiO2/substrate is prepared or obtained, the tin oxide layer is connected to the conductive wire 105. The surface of the resultant is preferably sealed with an insulating layer 104, while part of the tin oxide layer is exposed for coating urease as a detecting window and part of the conductive wire is exposed for connecting the gate of the metal oxide semiconductor field effect transistor.
  • [0038]
    Next, a urease layer is immobilized on the exposed part of the tin oxide layer by gel entrapment. The gel entrapment is performed by mixing the photosensitive polymer and the urease in a phosphate buffer solution, photopolymerizing the resulting mixture, and then placing the resultant in the dark at a low temperature for a proper time, thereby the urease is immobilized on the tin oxide layer. The photosensitive polymer may be, for example, a polyvinyl alcohol, which may have a styrylpyridinium group, such as PVA-SbQ. The photosensitive polymer and the urease are used in a ratio ranging from preferably 30:1 to 5:1, more preferably 25:1 to 15:1, and most preferably about 20:1 by weight. For example, the ratio may be in the range of 300 mg/100 μl PBS:10 mg/100 μl PBS to 50 mg/100 μl PBS:10 mg/100 μl PBS, preferably 250 mg/100 μl PBS:10 mg/100 μl PBS to 150 mg/100 μl PBS:10 mg/100 μl PBS. In the photopolymerization, urease (in 5 mM phosphate buffer solution, pH 7) and photosensitive polymer (in 5 mM phosphate buffer solution) are radiated to react. The radiation may be UV light, such as, a UV light with a wavelength of 365 nm. After the photopolymerization, the result may be placed in the dark, for example, a dark box, at a low temperature of, for example, 4° C. to −10° C., for a proper time, and thus the immobilization of urease on the tin oxide layer, as well as the sensing unit, is accomplished, as shown in FIG. 1c. Note that, in the gel entrapment, white light should be avoided to prevent self photopolymerization of the enzyme.
  • [0039]
    The sensing unit can be placed directly in the tested solution for the determination of pH value or urea concentration.

  • [0041]
    The reference electrode 204, for example, Ag/AgCl reference electrode, is immersed in the tested solution to help to maintain a stable voltage and provide the function of calibration.
  • [0042]
    The instrumentation amplifier 202 amplifies the electric signals and comprises two inputs and one output. The two inputs are connected to the biosensor 110 and the reference electrode 204 through the conductive wires 108 and 206. The instrumentation amplifier may be, for example, a commercially available IC, LT1167. The connection of the biosensor 110 and the instrumentation amplifier 202 can be accomplished by, for example, pin connection, and therefore, after measurement, the biosensor 110 and the instrumentation amplifier 202 are detachable to advantageously renew the biosensor 110.
  • [0043]

The computer 205 may be, for example, a personal computer. The communication interface card may be, for example, HP82350. The parameter measurement and the data storage may be controlled using HP VEE program installed in the computer. Microsoft Origin 6.0 is further used to analyze output signals or plot graphs.
  • [0045]
    In the measurement, the urea sensing film 109 of the biosensor 110 and the reference electrode are immersed in the tested solution 201 containing acid, base, or urea.
