Abstract: Electrochemical methods such as amperometry and impedance spectroscopy provide the feasibility of label-free immunoassay. However, the performance of electrochemical interfaces varies with the shape of gold nanostructures. In the present work three types of gold nanostructures including pyramid, spherical, and rod-like nanostructures were electrochemically synthesized on the gold electrode and were further transformed into immunosensor by covalent binding of antibodies. As a model protein, a cancer biomarker, Carcinoembryonic Antigen (CEA) was detected using amperometric and impedimetric techniques on three nanostructured electrodes, which enabled to evaluate and compare the immunoassay's performance. It was found that all three immunosensors showed improved linear electrochemical response to the concentration of CEA compared to bare Au electrode. Among all the spherical gold nanostructure based immunosensors displayed superior performance. Under optimal condition, the immunosensors exhibited a limit of detection of 4.1 pg ml−1 over a concentration range of five orders of magnitude. This paper emphasizes that fine control over the geometry of nanostructures is essentially important for high-performance electrochemical immunoassay.
