An amperometric biosensor based on the bioelectrocatalytic measurement principle for the detection of adrenaline has been developed. The adrenaline sensor has been prepared by modification of a platinum thin-film electrode with a pyrroloquinoline quinone-dependent glucose dehydrogenase. The enzyme was immobilized via cross-linking method. Lower detection limit of 1 nM of adrenaline has been achieved by measuring at physiological level at pH 7.4.
