A biosensor is proposed for selective and sensitive detection of glucose. This electrochemical amperometric bienzymatic glucose biosensor is constructed by co-immobilization of horseradish peroxidase and glucose oxidase on vertically aligned carbon nanofibers (VACNFs). An enzyme wiring technique is used to plug the enzymes with the metal electrode using VACNFs, which facilitates an effective way to transfer electrons from the electrode to the electrochemical reaction centers. Direct electron… CONTINUE READING
