An aflatoxin B₁ (AFB₁) electrochemical immunosensor was developed by the immobilisation of aflatoxin B₁-bovine serum albumin (AFB₁-BSA) conjugate on a polythionine (PTH)/gold nanoparticles (AuNP)-modified glassy carbon electrode (GCE). The surface of the AFB₁-BSA conjugate was covered with horseradish peroxidase (HRP), in order to prevent non-specific(More)
An electrochemical DNA nanobiosensor was prepared by immobilization of a 20mer thiolated probe DNA on electro-deposited generation 4 (G4) poly(propyleneimine) dendrimer (PPI) doped with gold nanoparticles (AuNP) as platform, on a glassy carbon electrode (GCE). Field emission scanning electron microscopy results confirmed the codeposition of PPI (which was(More)
This paper describes the use of horseradish peroxidase (HRP) based biosensor for novel detection of glyphosate herbicide. The biosensor was prepared by electrochemically depositing poly(2,5-dimethoxyaniline) (PDMA) doped with poly(4-styrenesulfonic acid) (PSS) onto the surface of a gold electrode followed by electrostatic attachment of the enzyme HRP onto(More)
Pesticide determination has attracted great attention due to the fact that they exhibit high acute toxicity and can cause long-term damage to the environment and human lives even at trace levels. Although classical analytical methods (including gas chromatography, high performance liquid chromatography, capillary electrophoresis and mass spectrometry) have(More)
