This letter presents the fabrication details and measured performance of a prototype flexible extended-gate ion-sensitive field effect transistor (ISFET) biosensor, manufactured using a metal oxide indium-gallium-zinc oxide thin film transistor and an indium-tin oxide sensing layer on a 125-μm thick flexible plastic substrate. ISFET drain current was shown to respond correctly to the pH buffer concentration with repeatable pH sensitivity observed over multiple cycles. These results demonstrate the initial viability of directly extending flexible plastic substrate organic light emitting diode display technology to the production of low-cost, plastic ISFET biosensors.
