Abstract

Okadaic acid (OA) is one of the marine toxins that are widely distributed and harmful to humans. However, the current detection methods for OA involve complex procedures, need long detection time, and rely on large-scale laboratory equipment. In this work, a multi-channel handheld automatic spectrometer (MHAS) based on a spectral sensor was developed with the advantages of small size, simple operation and low cost. It could achieve rapid detection within 30 s and a wide spectral detection range of 470-780 nm with a broadband LED as the light source and a microplate containing 8 wells as a sample cell. Moreover, through the combination of gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) and aptamer-OA34, a highly sensitive and rapid system for OA detection was established with a LOD of 1.80 ?g L-1 and a wide detection range of 20-10?000 ?g L-1, which is comparable to a microplate reader. Compared with other studies, the proposed MHAS realized rapid on-site detection of OA with a wider detection range, shorter detection time and higher portability. Therefore, the MHAS promises to be a stable and efficient optical detection instrument for on-site detection in the fields of food safety, disease diagnosis and environmental monitoring.
