    Electrochemical biosensor based on electric eel acetylcholinesterase (AChE) (EC 3.1.1.7) was performed for assay of nerve agents – tabun, sarin, soman, cyclosarin, and VX. The biosensor used AChE as biorecognition element. The presence of nerve agents was accompanied by a strong inhibition of AChE activity. Enzyme activity is easily measurable by electrochemical oxidation of thiocholine created from acetylthiocholine (ATChCl) by AChE-catalyzed hydrolysis. The tested nerve agents were successfully assayed. The best limits of detection were achieved for sarin (5.88×10-10 M) and VX (8.51×10-10 M) after one-minute assay. The biosensor was found long term stable at low as well as laboratory temperature.
