Aflatoxin B1 antibody (aAFB1) covalently attached to cysteamine functionalized-gold nanoparticles (C-AuNP) has been immobilized onto 4-mercaptobenzoic acid (MBA) based self assembled monolayer (SAM) on gold electrode (MBA/Au), for the fabrication of BSA/aAFB1-C-AuNP/MBA/Au immunoelectrode. This immunoelectrode has been characterized by Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FT-IR), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and electrochemical characterization techniques. The electrochemical response studies reveal that the BSA/aAFB1-C-AuNP/MBA/Au immunoelectrode can be used to detect AFB1 in the range of 10–100 ng dL− 1 and has sensitivity as 0.45 μA ng− 1 dL, limit of detection as 17.90 ng dL− 1 and a response time of 60 s.
