Abstract A highly branched polyethyleneimine (PEI) was used as a spacer for immobilizing alpha-chymotrypsin on the surface of Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) membranes which were deposited on the gate of an ion-sensitive field effect transistor (ISFET). alpha-Chymotrypsin could be covalently immobilized through the glutaraldehyde-activated PEI on the LB membrane-coated ISFET. The alpha-chymotrypsin-modified ISFET showed a potentiometric response to the substrate at concentrations of more than 0.1 mM. Some performance characteristics of the sensor, such as pH response, response time, and long-term stability were examined.
