Applied Physics Letters (Impact Factor: 3.3). 11/2009; 95(17):173703 - 173703-3. DOI: 10.1063/1.3249586

Cerium oxide nanoparticles ( NanoCeO 2) and chitosan (CH) based nanobiocomposite film deposited onto indium-tin-oxide coated glass substrate has been used to coimmobilize rabbit immunoglobin (r-IgGs) and bovine serum albumin (BSA) for food borne mycotoxin [ochratoxin-A (OTA)] detection. Electrochemical studies reveal that presence of NanoCeO 2 increases effective electro-active surface area of CH-NanoCeO 2/ indium tin oxide (ITO) nanobiocomposite resulting in high loading of r-IgGs. BSA / r-IgGs / CH-NanoCeO 2/ ITO immunoelectrode exhibits improved linearity (0.25–6.0 ng/dl), detection limit (0.25 ng/dl), response time (25 s), sensitivity (18 μ A / ng   dl -1  cm -2) , and regression coefficient ( r 2∼0.997) .

    ABSTRACT: The use of nanotechnology in bioanalytical devices has special advantages in the detection of toxins of interest in food safety and environmental applications. The low levels to be detected and the small size of toxins justify the increasing number of publications dealing with electrochemical biosensors, due to their high sensitivity and design versatility. The incorporation of nanomaterials in their development has been exploited to further increase their sensitivity, providing simple and fast devices, with multiplexed capabilities. This paper gives an overview of the electrochemical biosensors that have incorporated carbon and metal nanomaterials in their configurations for the detection of toxins. Biosensing systems based on magnetic beads or integrated into microfluidics systems have also been considered because of their contribution to the development of compact analytical devices. The roles of these materials, the methods used for their incorporation in the biosensor configurations as well as the advantages they provide to the analyses are summarised.

    • "It may perhaps be attributed to strong affinity of the antigens towards the antibodies that may promote spatial orientation which may provide an easy conducting path for electron transfer to the electrode surface as reported in literature [34] [35] [36]. Alternately, it may perhaps be related to the formation of antigen–antibody complex between AFB 1 and anti-AFB 1 onto MWCNTs/ITO surface that acts as the electron transfer accelerating layer enabling facile charge transfer to the electrode surface [35]. The calibration plot obtained for BSA/anti-AFB 1 /MWCNTs/ITO electrode as a function of AFB 1 concentration follows Eq. (7) [Fig. "

    ABSTRACT: We report results of studies relating to the development of an electrochemical immunosensor based on carboxylated multiwalled carbon nanotubes (c-MWCNTs) electrophoretically deposited onto indium tin oxide (ITO) glass. This c-MWCNTs/ITO electrode surface has been functionalized with monoclonal aflatoxin B1 antibodies (anti-AFB1) for the detection of aflatoxin-B1 using electrochemical technique. Electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction and Raman studies suggest the successful synthesis of c-MWCNTs and the Fourier transform infra-red spectroscopic (FT-IR) studies reveal its carboxylic functionalized nature. The proposed immunosensor shows high sensitivity (95.2 μA ng−1mL cm−2), improved detection limit (0.08 ng mL−1) in the linear detection range of 0.25-1.375 ng mL−1. The low value of association constant (0.0915 ng mL−1) indicates high affinity of immunoelectrode towards aflatoxin (AFB1).

    ABSTRACT: Nanostructured metal oxides (NMOs) have recently become important as materials that provide an effective surface for biomolecule immobilization with desired orientation, better conformation and high biological activity resulting in enhanced sensing characteristics. Nanostructured metal oxides with unique optical, electrical and molecular properties along with desired functionalities and surface charge properties provide interesting platforms for interfacing biorecognition elements with transducers for signal amplification. In this review, we discuss the various approaches that have been adopted for improving the performance of NMO-based biosensors for clinical and non-clinical applications. The performance of an NMO-based biosensor can be improved by tailoring the properties of the metal oxide–biomolecule interface through engineering of morphology, particle size, effective surface area, functionality, adsorption capability and electron-transfer properties. These interesting NMOs are expected to find applications in a new generation of miniaturized, smart biosensing devices.
