ABSTRACT: Application of a potassium ion sensor based on an ion sensitive field effect transistor (ISFET) for ion control of a dialysis solution in an artificial kidney and in blood plasma of patients treated by hemodialysis is presented. Sensors and their long-term stability were characterised in constant contact with test solutions. Test results are compared to those obtained with conventional ion-selective electrodes and commercial blood ion analyser. Tested ISFET sensors showed high reliability in potassium ion measurements in the physiologically significant concentration range which, along with low cost of their production, makes them promising for cited application.
