Building lactate biosensors using a facile layer-by-layer assembly
Recently considerable attention has been devoted to the immobilization of bio-molecules, especially enzymes on substrate surface, one of the main factors affecting the performance of a biosensor. Among various enzyme immobilization routes layer-by-layer (LBL) assembly has attracted much attention because of its simplicity. Multilayer films containing enzymes can be prepared by LBL assembly. We have successfully fabricated and characterized a lactate bio-sensor by using LBL assembly. The modified surface was shown to exhibit good reproducibility, stability and high sensitivity.
