Electrochemical Detection of E. coli O157:H7 Using Porous Pseudo-Carbon Paste Electrode Modified with Carboxylic Multi-Walled Carbon Nanotubes, Glutaraldehyde and 3-Aminopropyltriethoxysilane
Abstract:Fabrication of three different electrodes based on functional porous pseudo-carbon paste electrodes (PPCPEs) was described. PPCPEs were modified with carboxylic multi-walled carbon nanotubes (PPCPE-COOH), glutaraldehyde (PPCPE-CHO) and 3-aminopropyltriethoxysilane (PPCPE-NH2. The modified electrodes were applied in detection of E. coli O157:H7, it was showed that the electrochemical signal of PPCPE-CHO was the strongest among those three kinds of electrodes. A linear relationship between the anodic stripping peak current and the concentration of E. coli O157:H7 from 1.0 × 103 to 1.0 × 107 cells/mL and a limit of detection as low as 8.0 × 102 cells/mL were obtained when PPCPE-CHO was used.
