In the recent years medical potential of Implantable Medical Devices (IMD) has attracted increasing attention of surgical methods to improve the human health care. IMD is used as diagnostic or therapeutic devices. It is fabricated to replace the missing biological structure or improving the functioning of damaged biological structure. Bio sensor is a major block present in an implantable device it is an analytical device used for the detection of an analyze that combines a biological component with a physicochemical detector. To design an low power amplifier for biosensor is a challenging task, This paper present a low power CMOS based OTA with 1 V power supply produce an output current of 154 pA and power consumption of 19 μW. The proposed system has been developed by using 0.18 μm CMOS technology on CADENCE Design Environment with simulation results.
