An electrochemical DNA biosensor based on cystine modified self-assembled monolayer (cys-SAM) onto gold electrode (AuE) has been fabricated for Escherichia coli (E. coli) detection. This biosensing electrode has been characterized using scanning electron microscopy (SEM), FT-IR spectroscopy, cyclic voltammetry (CV), differential pulse voltammetry (DPV) and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS). Under the optimum conditions, this DNA biosensor can be used to detect complementary target DNA concentration in the range of 1 × 10− 6 M to 1 × 10− 20 M within 60 s of hybridization time at 25 °C and has been found to be stable for about four months when stored at 4 °C.
