Determination of Cardiac Troponin I for the Auxiliary Diagnosis of Acute Myocardial Infarction by Anodic Stripping Voltammetry at a Carbon Paste Electrode
Abstract:An electrochemical immunoassay for cardiac troponin I (cTnI) combining the concepts of the dual monoclonal antibody "sandwich" principle, the silver enhancement on the nano-gold particle, and the anodic stripping voltammetry is described. Four main steps were carried out to obtain the analytical signal, i.e., electrode preparation, immunoreaction, silver enhancement, and anodic stripping voltammetric detection. A linear relationship between the anodic stripping peak current and concentration of cTnI from 1 to 20 ng/ml and a limit of detection of 0.8 ng/ml were obtained. The established method was tested by determining cTnI in acute myocardial infarction (AMI) samples using enzyme-linked immunoadsorbent assay (ELISA) for comparison analysis, and good results were obtained.
