Detection of Escherichia coli bacteria by impact electrochemistry

Abstract

We report the redox mediated detection of Escherichia coli bacteria at carbon microelectrodes, using the impact electrochemistry technique. By employing N,N,N′,N′-tetramethyl-para-phenylene-diamine (TMPD) as redox mediator a concentration dependency for bacteria impacts was observed, whereby its impact frequency is shown to be in good agreement with theoretically predicted values.
