Speech Title: Recent Advances in Electrochemical Immunosensors and Aptasensors for the Detection of Polyphenol A or Antibodies Ranging From Cholera to Dengue

Abstract: For four decades, the development of biointerfaces has been the subject of increasing research efforts in the field of biosensors. In particular, the functionalization of electrodes with electrogenerated polymers and / or carbon nanotubes or graphene is widely used for the design of biomaterials. These nano-objects were successfully functionalized by electropolymerization of pyrrolic monomers or via π−π stacking interactions with pyrene derivatives exhibiting both affinity or covalent binding interactions towards biomolecules. Various biomolecule immobilization strategies were explored involving photografting or coordination process, affinity and host-guest interactions. In particular, recent examples of electropolymerized films will be presented for the design of labeless electrochemical immunosensors and aptasensors [1-3].

For instance, carbon nanotube deposits with different controlled thicknesses were successfully employed for the design of impedimetric immunosensor for cholera toxin antibody. These nanotube coatings were functionalized by polypyrrole-nitrilotriacetic acid (polyNTA) films and biotinylated cholera toxin. Following a similar elaboration strategy, an electrochemical highly sensitive aptasensor was developed based on electropolymerized poly-NTA film and a new aptamer functionalized by a pentahistidine peptide for the quantification of bisphenol A. A high performance impedimetric immunosensor for the dengue virus antibody detection will be reported. The carbon nanotube deposits on electrodes were functionalized with a poly(pyrrole-N-hydroxysuccinimide) film, which enables the immobilization of the Dengue Virus 2 NS1 glycoprotein, The resulting impedimetric dengue biosensor was tested in bovine blood plasma showing a detection limit of 10-13 g mL-1.
