In the present study, we monitored the alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activity of embryoid bodies (EBs) of mouse embryonic stem (ES) cells using a large-scale integration (LSI)-based amperometric device with 400 sensors and a pitch of 250 μm. In addition, a simulation analysis was performed to reveal the positional relationship between the EBs and the sensor electrodes toward more precise measurements. The study shows that simulation analysis can be applied for precise electrochemical imaging of three-dimensionally cultured cells by normalization of the current signals.
