The work presents a Chitosan-Graphene Oxide (Chi-GO) based ultra-thin sensors patch having arrays of gold (Au) based micro-gap (\pmb60μ m) electrode. The cross-linked GO is shown to improve the stability of chitosan substrate in aqueous medium. With human dermal fibroblast (HDF) cell immobilized Chi-GO surface, the sensor patch has been evaluated for label free monitoring. The cyclic voltammetry (CV) of cell immobilized chi-GO surface showed quasi-reversible nature with characteristic cathodic peak at + 300mV and anodic peak - 300mV. Both peaks are stable and repeatable up to 50-scan cycle without any potential shift. The device shows steady state peak enhancement (1.923-11.195nA) with the growth period (O-96h). The redox peak enhancement correlates with the proliferation rates of cell over time, indicating that it could be employed to investigate cyto-physiologic state against any endo and exogenous stimulation. The new compatibility of cross-linked chitosan with microfabrication steps and the ability of presented sensor patch to monitor cell-health will benefit a range of in vivo applications.
