Development of a conductivity-based immunosensor for sensitive detection of methamphetamine (stimulant drug) in human urine.

A simple immunosensor based on a conductivity method was developed for determination of methamphetamine (MA, a stimulant drug) in urine. Anti-MA antibody was immobilized onto the surface of a pair of platinum electrodes. The reaction of MA with the antibody causes a decrease in the conductivity of the anti-MA immobilized layer between the electrodes. A… (More)
