In this work, we report the analysis of the electrochemical detection of electroactive species with band microelectrodes that operate under controlled convection. The study focuses on the determination of the collection efficiency of the analyte as a function of inlet flow velocity and microband geometry (inlaid, bumped and recessed), also providing a straightforward method for the theoretical determination of the lower detection limit. The analysis has been carried out by simulating the dimensionless mass transport with the finite element method, delivering the stationary limiting current density. Simulations have been performed on systems consisting of single and double band electrodes to investigate the trail effect on the electrochemical detection. We show that the obtained dimensionless results can be easily turned into dimensional data, providing a tool for the design of devices. The proposed method is general and can easily be extended to systems with different geometry.
