Potentiometric responses of microelectronically fabricated planar pH sensors based on both TDDA or ETH 5294 proton neutral carriers, in aminated PVC matrix, were evaluated with respect to main analytical parameters (linear ranges, slopes, reproducibility of potential measurements, potential drift and membrane resistance). In order to increase the electrode life time, increased amounts of membrane material were applied on the Ag/AgCl-poly-HEMA active spots of the polyimide substrate. The electrodes were implanted into an in situ porcine beating heart preparation at a midmyocardial depth in order to monitor H(+) concentration changes during the course of coronary artery occlusion.
