Wireless potentiostats are being developed and commercialized for use in the development of implantable electrochemical biosensors for the monitoring of physiological markers in a wide range of pathologies. The merits and drawbacks of the Pinnacle Technology 8151 dual potentiostat are investigated for use with a novel implantable biotransducer, the dual responsive MDEA 5037 of ABTECH Scientific. In a laboratory setting, the 8151 potentiostat maintained a steady and unbroken signal as far away as 75 ft (23 m) and, when unobstructed, up to 100 ft (30 m). The percentage error between the two channels was determined to be 6.4 (±0.3) and 0.7 (±0.1) for resistor-capacitor dummy cells (RC = 10 MΩ and 1 μF) and resistor dummy cells (R = 10 MΩ), respectively. The intrachannel variability may be too large for exacting analyte determinations.
