Organophosphate pesticides are recommended pesticides by the Department of Agriculture, Indonesian government.
Research has developed enzyme biosensor for detection organophosphate pesticide residues in agriculture products.
The biosensor based on conductance measurement of organophosphate hydrolyzed by organophosphate hydrolase (OPH).
The conductance cell consisted of a pair of Screen Printed Carbon Electrode (SPCE), which is as a working and reference
electrode. Working electrode is SPCE which contain immobilized OPH on chitosan membrane by cross linked method with
glutaraldehyde. The area of electrodes was optimized to 3 mm
, 5 mm
and 7 mm
. The OPH was isolated from
, that were purified by ammonium sulfate precipitation method, 6444 ppm (A) and 7865 ppm (B). The organophosphate
pesticide samples were 0 to 0.1 ppm in tris-acetate buffer 0.05 M pH 8.5. The results showed that the performance of biosensor
made by A enzyme is better than biosensor by B. The highest sensitivity of biosensor was resulted by electrodes of area 5 mm
The sensitivity of biosensor in between 109-242 μS/ppm with a detection limit for each of organophosphates is 0.03 ppm
(diazinon); 0.03 ppm (malathion); 0.04 ppm (chlorpyrifos), and 0.03 ppm (profenofos). The detection limit of the biosensor is
lower than maximum threshold of organophosphate pesticide residues in agriculture products.
