|Title:||Multi-electrode detection in voltammetry Part 2. Evaluation of a Hadamard multiplexed voltammetric technique|
|Abstract:||A multiplex approach has been evaluated:to obtain individual voltammetric signals coming from an array of independent microelectrodes. The multiplex design employs S matrices and the Hadamard-transform to recover the signals for each electrode. Two pulse like voltammetric techniques, resembling the conventional normal pulse and differential pulse techniques, have been employed to generate: the multiplexed currents.-An array of 31 microelectrodes has been employed and the signal-to-noise ratio (SN obtained for the measurements presented a gain that is close to:the 2.78 value predicted by the multiplex design. However; the reduction in the time-interval spent for data acquisition was not 16, as predicted but 3 times. The increase in the data acquisition time for the multiplexed reading is a consequence of the pulse techniques employed. These techniques Cause depletion of the electroactive specimen near the electrode surface. To overcome this problem a resting potential of 100 ms and a false multiplexed pre-scan, must be employed. The gain in the S/N obtained allows fdr a three times enhancement in the detection limit for Pb-II determination when compared to the same non-multiplexed technique.|
