Resumo

This work describes the construction of an all-plastic disposable carbon-based electrochemical cell (DCell) using a simple procedure based on the use of a home cutter printer for prototyping and laminating. The cutter printer and adhesive vinyl films were used to produce three electrodes in an electrochemical cell layout, and a laminating process was then used to define the geometric area and insulate the electrodes. The DCell showed excellent performance in several applications including the determination of toxic metals in water samples, the immobilization of DNA and the detection of Salmonella. An unmodified DCell was applied for Pb and Cd detection in the range of 100-300 ng mL(-1) with a limit of detection of 50 and 39 ng mL(-1) for Cd and Pb, respectively. DNA was successfully immobilized on a DCell and used for studies of interaction between bisphenol A and DNA. The square wave voltammetry of a DNA modified DCell presented a guanine oxidation current 2.5 times greater after exposure of the electrode to bisphenol A and no current variation for the adenine moiety indicating that bisphenol A showed a preference for DNA interaction sites. A magneto-immunoassay was developed using a DCell for Salmonella detection in milk samples. The system presented a linear range from 100 to 700 cells mL(-1) with a limit of detection of 100 cells mL(-1) and good recovery values between 93% and 101% in milk samples, with no interference from Escherichia coli. Using the proposed method, hundreds of DCells can be assembled in less than two hours, at a material cost of less than US \$0.02 per cell. The all-plastic disposable electrochemical cell developed was successfully applied as an electrochemical sensor and biosensor. The feasibility of the developed all-plastic disposable electrochemical cell was demonstrated in applications as both sensor and biosensor. (C) 2015 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. (AU)
