Nowadays, there is a widespread interest in developing miniaturized, simple and cheap platforms that produce fast and reliable responses. Electrochemical techniques fit perfectly with these purposes especially in combination with low-cost materials. Thus, in this work, we present innovative electrochemical devices based on the use of metallic mass-produced materials of common use such as pins, staples and thumbtacks.The use of stainless-steel pins for electroanalytical purposes has been recently introduced by Whitesides? group . We have used them, as well as staples, to design different electroanalytical systems. In all the cases, a carbon-coated surface acted as working electrode (WE) and two bare pins, staples or wires as reference (RE) and counter (CE) electrodes. We have developed different pin-based electroanalytical systems: i) an enzymatic biosensor for glucose that uses a transparency sheet as support (Fig. 1A) , ii) a flow injection analysis (FIA) system for glucose determination in drinks , and iii) a batch injection (BIA) electroanalytical system for epinephrine determination in pharmaceuticals .On another note, chromatographic filter paper was combined with stainless-steel staples, used as electrodes (Fig. 1B), for the immunoelectrochemical detection of human tissue transglutaminase (related to celiac disease). Finally, an electrochemical cell, which includes carbon-coated thumbtacks (WE) and stainless-steel wires (RE and CE) (Fig. 1C), was also evaluated as a proof-of-concept for the design of novel low-cost electroanalytical platforms.References A.C.
