The presence of Escherichia coli (E. coli) in food and drinking water is a chronic problem worldwide. Protecting food against bacterial contamination and rapid diagnosis of infection require simple and rapid assays for detection of bacterial pathogens, including E. coli O157:H7. Here we report a rapid and novel colorimetric method for detecting E. coli(More)
A novel and sensitive colorimetric method for determination of melamine in milk samples was developed by a 3-mercapto-1-propanesulfonate-modified gold nanoparticles (MPS-GNPs) probe. Melamine molecule has multiple -NH(2) groups. These functional groups can interact with MPS to form strong hydrogen bonding and induce the aggregation of the MPS-GNPs,(More)
A sensitive and selective colorimetric detection method for Cysteine (Cys) was established in this paper. The detection mechanism is based on the oxidation of Cys by H2O2, which prevents the catalysis of the 2,2'-azino-bis-(3-ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulfonic acid (ABTS)-H2O2 reaction by G-quadruplex halves. With the addition of Cys, the amount of the(More)
A simply electrochemical method based on CdSe microparticles modified glassy carbon electrode (GCE) was developed to determine theophylline using cyclic voltammetry and differential pulse voltammetry. Theophylline showed a well-defined oxidation peak at the fabricated electrode in phosphate buffer solution and the oxidation peak current is much higher than(More)
An enzyme-free amperometric method was established for the electrochemical reduction tert-butyl hydroperoxide (TBHP) on the utilization of nano-cobalt phthalocyanine (CoPc) loaded functionalized graphene (FGR) and to create a highly responsive organic peroxide sensor. FGR was synthesized with a simple and fast method of electrolysis with potassium(More)
