Abstract: Lactate biosensor was fabricated by immobilizing lactate oxidase in cellulose acetate membrane and by mounting over the sensing part of Pt electrode (working) and connected to Ag/AgCl electrode (reference) along with auxillary electrode through potentiostat. The enzyme electrode was anodically polarized at +400 mV to generate electrons from H2O2, which was formed from oxidation of serum lactate by immobilized lactate oxidase. The minimum detection limit of the electrode was 0.1mmoles/L and sensitivity of the sensor was 0.008 mA/mM/L lactate. Assay coefficients of variation were < 2% .A good correlation (r=0.99) was found between lactate values obtained by colorimetric method and lactate biosensor. The self-life of the biosensor was 18 days at 4șC and enzyme electrode can be re-used 150 times without any significant loss in enzyme activity.
