Abstract

There has been much interest in constructing ratiometric sensors using different sensing techniques because of their synergistic effect, although the simultaneous collection of the signals is challenging. Herein, we propose a ratiometric aptasensing strategy based on the dual-detection model with a photoelectrochemical (PEC) “signalon” and an electrochemical (EC) “signal-off”. As a proof-of-concept study, CdTe quantum dots (CdTe QDs) and a methylene blue-labeled aptamer (MB-Apt) were used to generate PEC and EC signals in the sensing system. The target-induced conformational change of MB-Apt pushed MB away from the electrode, thereby decreasing the EC signal; at the same time, the reduced steric hindrance favored the restoration of the PEC signal from the CdTe QDs. Thus, this PEC-EC strategy can achieve the PEC “signal-on” and EC “signal-off” states simultaneously, as well as allowing quantitative analysis of the target based on the ratio of the current intensities. As a model application, an aptasensor fabricated for streptomycin detection showed a wide linear range from 0.03 to 100 μM with a detection limit of 10 nM (S/N = 3). The proposed sensing platform displayed superior analytical properties compared with methods based on PEC or EC alone. Our work provides an efficient dual-detection modelbased ratiometric strategy for advanced analysis, and paves the way to the simultaneous acquisition of signals.
