Portable taste sensor

Yusuke Tahara

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


A new design of miniaturized taste sensor chip for use in a portable taste sensor is described. The fabricated sensor chip consisted of a Ti/Ag electrode patterned using Ag/AgCl ink on a polycarbonate substrate, a strip of double-faced adhesive tape and a partition. The "taste-sensing" site to detect taste consisted of an electrolyte layer and a lipid/polymer membrane. Sensor outputs from the sensor chips in response to a range of standard taste substances and coffee samples showed good correlation with conventional taste sensor probes. Thus, the fabricated taste sensor chip can be used as a key element for the realization of a portable taste sensor.
