Abstract:In this paper, we present a simple method to fabricate an enzyme microreactor using soft lithography and magnetic microbeads. For proof of concept, we performed an enzymatic reaction by flowing non-fluorescent resazurin through diaphorase (DI) (E.C. 1.6.99) covalently attached to magnetic microbeads packed in a PDMS microfluidic chip to convert it to fluorescent resorufin in the presence of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADH).
