Analytical biochemistry

A thin film electro-acoustic enzyme biosensor allowing the detection of trace organophosphorus pesticides.


PMID 22796536

Abstract

We report an analytical method using a thin film electro-acoustic resonator for the detection of organophosphorus pesticides. The acetylcholinesterase (AChE) enzyme was immobilized on the surface of the resonator. In the presence of organophosphorus compounds, the degree of inhibitory effect of organophosphorus compounds on the AChE activity and the concentration of pesticides were detected in real time by measuring the frequency shift of the resonator. The proposed device has a remarkably low detection limit of 1.8×10(-11)M and obvious advantages such as small size, simple operation, and integrated circuit compatibility, providing a promising tool for pesticide analysis.
