This paper discusses microfabricated structures for biochemical studies. We built microreactors using conventional MEMS (microelectromechanical systems) techniques-silicon anisotropic etching and glass-silicon anodic bonding. In the microreactors, luciferin-luciferase reaction was conducted as an example of enzymatic reactions. Firefly luciferase catalyzes oxidation of luciferin. Luminescence induced by this reaction was photographed on a extra-high speed film. Diffusion-based mixing in the microreactors was dearly visualized. Such information would be helpful for developing more complicated microbiochemical systems, can be detected easily because of its luminescence.
