Study of carbon nanotube modified biosensor for monitoring total cholesterol in blood.Biosens Bioelectron. 2005 Apr 15; 20(10):2140-4.BB
A carbon nanotube modified biosensor for monitoring total cholesterol in blood was studied. This sensor consists of a carbon working electrode and a reference electrode screen-printed on a polycarbonate substrate. Cholesterol esterase, cholesterol oxidase, peroxidase and potassium ferrocyanide were immobilized on the screen-printed carbon electrodes. Multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCN) were added to prompt electron transfer. Experimental results show that the carbon nanotube modified biosensor offers a reliable calibration profile and stable electrochemical properties.
