Electrochemical biosensors for evaluation of contaminants in food.

PMID:  11370299     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
This paper describes the application of electrochemical disposable biosensors in food analysis, which have recently been developed in our laboratory. Disposable biosensors, based on acetylcholinesterase inhibition activity, were exploited for testing the presence of organophosphorus and carbamate pesticides in water, fruit, and vegetable samples. The paper further describes preliminary tests for the detection of genetically modified organisms and hybridisation by coupling the DNA biosensors with the polymerase chain reaction.
