ABSTRACT A lactate oxidase-based amperometric biosensor is designed for lactate determination. Two methods of lactate oxidase immobilization on the surface of commercial SensLab platinum printing electrodes are compared. The sensor with lactate oxidase immobilized by physical adsorption in Resydrol polymer is shown to have both narrower dynamic range (0.004–0.5 mМ lactate) and higher sensitivity (320 nA/mM) as compared with that immobilized in poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) by electrochemical polymerization (0.05–1.6 mM and 60 nA/mM respectively). The operational stability of the biosensors developed is studied; the immobilization method is shown to be of no influence. The lactate content in wine and in wine material during fermentation is analyzed. The data obtained by amperometric lactate biosensor correlated with those of standard chromatography. The biosensor developed can be used in food industry for control and optimization of process of wine fermentation as well as for control of wine quality.

    ABSTRACT: The paper is a review of the researches of Biomolecular Electronics Laboratory concerning the development of biosensors based on electrochemical transducers (amperometric and conductometric electrodes, potentiometric pH-sensitive field effect transistors) and different biorecognition molecules (enzymes, cells, antibodies), biomi-mics (molecularly imprinted polymers), as sensitive elements for direct analysis of substrates or inhibitory analy-sis of toxicants. Highly specific, sensitive, simple, fast and cheap detection of different substances renders them as promising tools for needs of health care, environmental control, biotechnology, agriculture and food industries. Diverse biosensor formats for direct determination of different analytes and inhibitory enzyme analysis of a num-ber of toxins have been designed and developed. Improvement of their analytical characteristics may be achie-ved by using differential mode of measurement, negatively or positively charged additional semipermeable memb-ranes, nanomaterials of different origin, genetically modified enzymes. These approaches have been aimed at in-creasing the sensitivity, selectivity and stability of the biosensors and extending their dynamic ranges. During the last 25 years more than 50 laboratory prototypes of biosensor systems based on mono-and multibiosensors for direct determination of a variety of metabolites and inhibitory analysis of different toxic substances were crea-ted. Some of them were tested in real samples analysis. The advantages and disadvantages of the biosensors de-veloped are discussed. The possibility of their practical application is considered. Introduction. The last decades have shown unprece-dented interest in the development of analytical devices for the detection, quantification, and monitoring of dif-ferent biological and chemical compounds. The dynamic field of biosensors is covered by the extensive number of reviews [1–5]. As compared with existing standard methods of sub-strate determination, electrochemical biosensor methods of analysis have a number of advantages: they provide easy, fast, accurate, highly sensitive, spesific, and cheap procedure of measurement. Besides, real-time measure-ments are possible, while only minimal probe pretreat-ment is necessary. A biosensor is a self-contained device consisting of two functional parts. A bioselective element is in direct contact with a physical transducer, which transforms the information from biorecognition domain into an electrical or optical signal. The amplitude of such signal depends on the concentration of the analysed compound (analyte) in the sample. Biologically active materials used for the construction of biosensor sys-tems can be divided into two main groups: catalytic (en-zymes, cells, tissues, biomimics) and noncatalytic, or af-finity (antibodies, receptors, nucleic acids, biomimics). Electrochemical (amperometric, potentiometric, con-ductometric or impedimetric), optical, calorimetric, and acoustic transducers are currently used in measuring systems. The main endevours in the biosensor develop-ment are focused on the exploration of various combi-nations of biological components (or their synthetic mi-mics) with different transducers.

    ABSTRACT: a b s t r a c t An original method combining two conductometric biosensors is proposed for the determination of total lactate, l-and d-lactate in dairy products. The biosensors were prepared through cross-linking of l-lactate oxidase from Pediococcus sp. (LODP) or a combination of LODP and horseradish peroxidase (HRP) at the surface of gold interdigitated microelectrodes using glutaraldehyde (GA) vapors. LODP is reported to catalyze specifically l-lactate oxidation into pyruvate and hydrogen peroxide in solution. In this work, we showed that LODP chiral selectivity was lost following enzyme cross-linking, rendering LODP sensor suitable for total lactate determination. Biosensor sensitivity towards both stereoisomers was 1.16 ± 0.04 S M −1 . The addition of HRP significantly improved the linear range and stability of LODP biosensor, but also increased its sensitivity, the effect being more pronounced for d-lactate (+381%) than for l-lactate (+260%). This result was attributed to a modification in LODP chiral selectivity com-bined with the production of additional ions (acetate, H + and HCO 3 −) via the HRP-catalyzed oxidation of pyruvate. A method, taking advantage of the difference in d-and l-lactate behaviours and combining the monoenzymatic and bienzymatic biosensors calibration data, was proposed for the calculation of their concentrations in unknown samples. Different parameters (HRP/LODP ratio, exposure time to GA vapors, pH and concentration of measurement medium) were optimized in order to achieve the best compromise between sensitivity and stability of the biosensors. The best limit of detection for l-and d-lactate, calculated as three times the signal to noise ratio was achieved with the bi-enzymatic sensor and was equal to 0.05 M. LODP/HRP biosensor response towards l-lactate was not significantly affected by glucose, fructose and lactose. The proposed biosensors were finally applied to the determination of total lactate, d-and l-lactate concentrations in yogurt samples. Results were in good agreement with those obtained using a reference colorimetric enzymatic method.

    ABSTRACT: Many research efforts over the last few decades have been devoted to sensing lactate as an important analytical target in clinical care, sport medicine, and food processing. Therefore, research in designing lactate sensors is no longer in its infancy and now is more directed toward viable sensors for direct applications. In this review, we provide an overview of the most immediate and relevant developments toward this end, and we discuss and assess common transduction approaches. Further, we critically describe the pros and cons of current commercial lactate sensors and envision how future sensing design may benefit from emerging new technologies.
