Room temperature Ionic liquids (RTILs) have evolved as a new type of solvent for biocatalysis, mainly due to their unique and tunable physical properties.[1] In addition, within the family of organic semiconductor-based sensors, organic electrochemical transistors (OECTs) have attracted particular interest.[2] Here, we present a simple and robust biosensor, based on a OECT, capable of measuring lactic acid using a gel-like polymeric materials that endow RTIL (ionogel)[3] as solid-state electrolyte both to immobilise the enzyme and to serve as a supporting electrolyte.[4] This represents the first step towards the achievement of a fast, flexible, miniaturised and cheap way of measuring lactate concentration in sweat.
