ABSTRACT: Ready-to-use sensing probes have been used to develop a rapid production, low-cost, fast and sensitive electronic tongue, which consists of electric double-layer microfluidic capacitors. Pencil graphite cores consisting of rough flake-graphite with various ratios of graphite, clay and wax assured differential interactions towards pattern recognition applications.
