We present the design, fabrication, and testing of a low-cost, miniaturized detection system that utilizes chemiluminescence to measure the presence of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the energy unit in biological systems, in water samples. The ATP–luciferin chemiluminescent solution was faced to a silicon photomultiplier (SiPM) for highly sensitive real-time detection. This system can detect ATP concentrations as low as 0.2 nM, with a sensitivity of 79.5 A/M. Additionally, it offers rapid response times and can measure the characteristic time required for reactant diffusion and mixing within the reaction volume, determined to be 0.3 ± 0.1 s. This corresponds to a diffusion velocity of approximately 44 ± 14 mm2/s.

Abstract

We present the design, fabrication, and testing of a low-cost, miniaturized detection system that utilizes chemiluminescence to measure the presence of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the energy unit in biological systems, in water samples. The ATP–luciferin chemiluminescent solution was faced to a silicon photomultiplier (SiPM) for highly sensitive real-time detection. This system can detect ATP concentrations as low as 0.2 nM, with a sensitivity of 79.5 A/M. Additionally, it offers rapid response times and can measure the characteristic time required for reactant diffusion and mixing within the reaction volume, determined to be 0.3 ± 0.1 s. This corresponds to a diffusion velocity of approximately 44 ± 14 mm2/s.
