Impedance Spectroscopy: A Measure for Total Cholesterol Determination Based on Electropolymerised Polyaniline-Ag Nanocomposites
A novel impedimetric total cholesterol biosensor based on silver nanoparticle (AgNP) and polyaniline (PANI) nanocomposite film electrochemically deposited onto indium tin oxide (ITO) coated glass plate has been fabricated through covalent immobilization of cholesterol oxidase (ChOx) and cholesterol esterase. Impedimetric response studies of the nanobioelectrodes exhibit wide linear range 0.3–6.1 mM, low detection limit 0.25 mM, fast response time 20 s, low value of Michaelis-Menten constant and high sensitivity 300 /mM/cm2 with a regression coefficient 0.99. The ChEt-ChOx/AgNP/PANI/ITO nanobioelectrode has been successfully used for estimation of total cholesterol in blood serum using impedimetric technique.

More about this publication?
- Bionanoscience attempts to harness various functions of biological macromolecules and integrate them with engineering for technological applications. It is based on a bottom-up approach and encompasses structural biology, biomacromolecular engineering, material science, and engineering, extending the horizon of material science. The journal aims at publication of (i) Letters (ii) Reviews (3) Concepts (4) Rapid communications (5) Research papers (6) Book reviews (7) Conference announcements in the interface between chemistry, physics, biology, material science, and technology. The use of biological macromolecules as sensors, biomaterials, information storage devices, biomolecular arrays, molecular machines is significantly increasing. The traditional disciplines of chemistry, physics, and biology are overlapping and coalescing with nanoscale science and technology. Currently research in this area is scattered in different journals and this journal seeks to bring them under a single umbrella to ensure highest quality peer-reviewed research for rapid dissemination in areas that are in the forefront of science and technology which is witnessing phenomenal and accelerated growth.
