Description A carbon paste electrode biosensor for D-lactic acid analysis in biological samples was developed. D-lactate cytochrome c oxidoreductase from baker's yeast (EC was used as biorecognition element of the electrode in combination with phenazine methosulphate (PMS)-Reinecke's salt precipitate as mediator. The enzyme was bound on paste due to Enzacryl using glutardialdehyde. The electrode response to D-lactate addition was linear in the concentration range of 0.015-100 mM. Limit of detection was equal to 56 mu M when signal vs. noise criterium (S/N=3) is considered. Specificity for only D-lactate was proven. Relative standard deviation of 6.6 % for 12 mM D-lactate was found. The biosensor exerts long-term stability and also good stability during repeated measuring cycles. The electrode has a good potential for use in practical samples.
