At present, the number of patients with hyperuricemia and gout in China is increasing year by year, and the demand for uric acid detection is increasing. In the current situation, a uric acid detection chip was designed based on the redox reaction between potassium ferricyanide and uric acid and the principle of electrochemical sensor, and the uric acid content was measured by the electrochemical detection chip and the software PSTrace5.8, and the error of the result was within ±10%. The method is low cost and high accuracy, which can provide a new technical means for uric acid detection.
