We have prepared nanocomposite films comprising of 3-glycidoxypropyltrimethoxysilane (GOPS) and iron-oxide (Fe3O4) onto indium-tin-oxide (ITO) glass plate for covalent immobilization of 21-mer peptide nucleic acid (PNA). These films have been characterized using contact angle, atomic force microscopy (AFM), electrochemical techniques. The electrochemical response of the GOPS/ITO and Fe3O4-GOPS/ITO electrodes has been investigated by hybridization with complementary, non-complementary and one-base mismatch using methylene blue as electrochemical indicator. The PNA/Fe3O4-GOPS/ITO bioelectrode exhibits improved specificity and detection limit (0.1 fM) as compared to that of the PNA-GOPS/ITO bioelectrode (0.1 pM). This PNA/Fe3O4-GOPS/ITO electrode can be utilized for detection of hybridization with the complementary sequence in sonicated M. tuberculosis genomic DNA within 90 s of hybridization time.
