ABSTRACT The aim of this work was the development of monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) and highly sensitive immunoassays (ELISAs) to bisphenol A (BPA), a well-known endocrine disruptor able to migrate from the internal coating of cans to food contained inside, particularly vegetables. To produce MAbs to BPA, four synthetic compounds were conjugated to proteins and used as immunizing haptens in mice. By applying hybridoma technology, several MAbs were produced and selected. These antibodies were characterized in the conjugate-coated and in the antibody-coated formats, using both homologous and heterologous conjugates. Three indirect ELISA based on the MAbs showing the highest affinity to BPA were selected. The limit of detection of the most sensitive ELISA was 0.22 nM (0.05 ng/mL), with an I₅₀ value of around 1 nM (0.23 ng/mL). An homologous ELISA based on the MAb BPAB-11 was applied to the simple, direct determination of BPA in the liquid portion of canned artichoke, peas, and sweet corn. Only sample dilution in an appropriate saline buffer was required to minimize matrix effects and to enter the ELISA working range. Recovery and precision of the method were evaluated by spiking the liquid portion of these cans with BPA at 20, 50, and 100 ng/mL. Coefficients of variation were below 20% in most cases. With regard to recovery, the analytical data obtained were also acceptable. This immunoassay has therefore proved its potential as a new tool for the rapid, sensitive and accurate determination of BPA in canned food.

    ABSTRACT: A simple and label-free electrochemical aptasensor for bisphenol A (BPA) determination was developed based on gold nanoparticles dotted graphene (GNPs/GR) nanocomposite film modified glassy carbon electrode (GCE). The electrochemical probe of ferricyanide was used to investigate the interactions between aptamer and BPA. The resulting GNPs/GR layer exhibited good current response for BPA detection. The highly conductive and biocompatible nanostructure of GNPs/GR nanocomposite was characterised by atomic force microscope (AFM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and cyclic voltammetry (CV). The peak current change (ΔI) of ferricyanide was linear with the concentration of BPA in the range from 0.01 μM to 10 μM with the detection limit of 5 nM. The proposed aptasensor is rapid, convenient and low-cost for effective sensing of BPA. Particularly, the aptasensor was applied successfully to determine BPA in milk products, and the average recovery was 105%.

    ABSTRACT: A selective electrochemical sensor based on magnetic molecularly imprinted nanoparticles was developed for determination of bisphenol A (BPA). The particles with regular morphology, high saturation magnetization and good monodispersion were prepared. The hydrophilicity, sensitivity and anti-fouling of the sensor were enhanced by modifying carbon paste electrode with surfactant CTAB in advanced. The results demonstrated that the response of BPA on imprinted electrode was 2.6 times as much as that on non-imprinted sensor. Moreover, the separation factors of BPA to β-estradiol, estriol and diethylstilbestrol were 16.5, 17.3 and 6.6, respectively. Under optimized conditions, the currents were found to be proportional to the BPA concentrations in the range of 6.0×10(-7)-1.0×10(-4)mol/L with a detection limit of 1.0×10(-7)mol/L (S/N=3). A rapid response of the imprinted sensor was obtained within 3min. The developed sensor was successfully used for determination of BPA in actual samples such as drink bottles and lake water.

    ABSTRACT: We discuss state-of-the-art sensing methods for the detection of bisphenol-A (BPA), a well-known and much studied contaminant causing a wide range of health problems to living beings especially the young. These methods are rapid, sensitive, inexpensive and suitable for on-site monitoring. We comprehensively review the principles, the mechanisms and the performances of chemical sensors and biosensors available in the literature. We also discuss future perspectives in developing sensors for the detection of BPA.
