Voltammetric enzyme dual sensors for simultaneous determination of free and total prostate specific antigen (fPSA and tPSA) are described. Alkaline Phosphatase (AP) and a mixture solution of 3-indoxyl phosphate and silver ions were used as the enzymatic label and substrate, respectively. 8A6 or 5G6 antibodies specific for free and total PSA, respectively,(More)
Voltammetric enzyme genosensors on streptavidin-modified screen-printed carbon electrodes (SPCEs) for the detection of virulence nucleic acid determinants of pneumolysin and autolysin genes, exclusively present on the genome of the human pathogen Streptococcus pneumoniae, were described. Alkaline phosphatase (AP) and 3-indoxyl phosphate were used as the(More)
Alkaline phosphatase (AP) is one of the most used enzymatic labels for the development of ELISAs, immunosensors, DNA hybridization assays, etc. This enzyme catalyzes the dephosphorylation of a substrate into a detectable product usually quantified by optical or electrochemical measurements. This work is based on a substrate (3-indoxyl phosphate) that(More)
Acetaminophenol or paracetamol is one of the most commonly used analgesics in pharmaceutical formulations. Acetaminophen is electroactive and voltammetric mechanistic studies for the electrode processes of the acetaminophenol/N-acetyl-p-quinoneimine redox system are presented. Carbon nanotubes modified screen-printed electrodes with enhanced electron(More)
Voltammetric enzyme immunosensors based on the employment of streptavidin modified screen-printed carbon electrodes (SPCEs) for the detection of rabbit IgG, as a model analyte, were described. Alkaline phosphatase (AP) and 3-indoxyl phosphate (3-IP) were used as the enzymatic label and substrate, respectively. The adsorption of streptavidin was performed by(More)
Voltammetric genosensors on streptavidin-modified screen-printed carbon electrodes (SPCEs) for the detection of virulence nucleic acid determinants of pneumolysin (ply) and autolysin (lytA) genes, exclusively present on the genome of the human pathogen Streptococcus pneumoniae, were described. The oligonucleotide probes were immobilized on electrochemically(More)
Herein we present highly stable ferromagnetic nickel nanowires modified with streptavidin (NiNW-STR). This versatile functionalized nanomaterial works as an excellent biosensing platform for the immobilization of a wide range of biotinylated molecules. Moreover, these NWs can be employed in magnetic-based assays. Different proofs-of-concept such as(More)
Herein, a new miniaturized analytical instrumentation for electrochemiluminescence (ECL) assays is presented. A photodiode integrated in an ECL cell combined with a potentiostat/galvanostat, all integrated in a one-piece instrument (μSTAT ECL), was developed. In addition, a complementary micro-spectrometer integrated in a similar ECL cell for luminescence(More)
In this work, we describe the use of a magnetoelectrochemical support for screen-printed electrodes to improve the anodic stripping voltammetry of cadmium due to the generated magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) effect. To create a significant MHD effect, Fe(iii) was added at mM concentrations to the solution. The reduction of Fe(iii) simultaneously with the cadmium(More)
Real-time spectroelectrochemistry of [Ru(bpy)3]2+ electroluminescence showed a strong correlation with electrochemical processes occurring at metal screen-printed electrodes. Luminescence was quenched when the metal oxidation takes place, but it behaved differently when gold or silver were reduced, which suggests that changes in the structural(More)
