Chronoamperometric assays based on tyrosinase and glucose oxidase (GOx) inactivation have been developed for the monitoring of Cr(III) and Cr(VI). Tyrosinase was immobilized by crosslinking on screen-printed carbon electrodes (SPCEs) containing tetrathiafulvalene (TTF) as electron transfer mediator. The tyrosinase/SPC(TTF)E response to pyrocatechol is(More)
Horseradish peroxidase has been successfully immobilized in a polypyrrole matrix onto disposable screen-printed carbon electrodes for the selective detection of Ochratoxin A. The chronoamperometric determination of this mycotoxin has been optimized by experimental design methodology, which implied the join evaluation of pH of the buffer solution, applied(More)
A novel amperometric biosensor for the determination of Al(III) based on the inhibition of the enzyme acetylcholinesterase has been developed. The immobilization of the enzyme was performed on screen-printed carbon electrodes modified with gold nanoparticles. The oxidation signal of acetylthiocholine iodide enzyme substrate was affected by the presence of(More)
This work reports monoamine oxidase (MAO)/horseradish peroxidase (HRP) and diamine oxidase (DAO)/horseradish peroxidase (HRP) based biosensors using screen-printed carbon electrodes for the determination of biogenic amines (BA). The enzymes have been covalently immobilized onto the carbon working electrode, previously modified by an aryl diazonium salt,(More)
This work shows an easy and fast electrochemical method for Levetiracetam (LEV) determination, which is a novel antiepileptic. Most of the methods used up to now for its determination required a pre-treatment of the sample. It is shown here that the developed Peroxidase based biosensors avoid this kind of drawbacks. Screen-printed carbon electrodes have(More)
A new enzymatic electrochemical biosensor based on disposable transducers, namely screen-printed carbon electrodes, has been developed for the determination of the antiepileptic drug levetiracetam. Horseradish peroxidase was immobilized onto the carbon working electrode previously modified by an aryl diazonium salt. The formation of amide bonds between the(More)
Carbon screen-printed electrodes (CSPEs) modified with metal nanoparticles present an interesting alternative in the determination of chromium(VI) by differential pulse voltammetry (DPV). Metallic silver and gold nanoparticle deposits have been obtained by electrochemical deposition. Scanning electron microscopy measurements show that the electrochemically(More)
This work summarizes the manufacturing procedure of Horseradish peroxidase (HRP) based biosensors for the determination of the mycotoxin Ochratoxin A (OTA). The biosensors have been fabricated using the single technology of screen-printing. That is to say, an HRP containing ink has been directly screen-printed onto carbon electrodes, which offers a higher(More)
This work presents the simultaneous determination of cadaverine, histamine, putrescine and tyramine by square wave voltammetry using a boron-doped diamond electrode. A multivariate calibration method based on partial least square regressions has allowed the resolution of the very high overlapped voltammetric signals obtained for the analyzed biogenic(More)
An easy covalent immobilization method used to develop enzyme biosensors based on carbon and gold screen printed electrodes (SPCEs and gold SPEs) is described. The linkage of biomolecules through 4-nitrobenzenediazonium tetrafluoroborate, mercaptopropionic acid and thioctic acid monolayers has been attempted using bare SPCEs and gold SPEs, as well as gold(More)
