Helicobacter pylori is a Gram-negative, spiral shaped, microaerophilic bacteria that colonizes human gastric mucosa and causes various gastric diseases. In this work, the utilization of ion irradiated zinc oxide tetrapods (ZnO-T) based biohybrid interface accentuates the development of an electrochemical immunosensor for the fast and sensitive detection of H. pylori. After coating of (ZnO-T) over the surface of screen printed electrode (SP-AuE) through electrodeposition, the ZnO-T/SP-AuE was irradiated with N2+ ion of energy 100 keV. The ion irradiation significantly enhances the conductivity of ZnO-T coated SP-AuE. The revamped SP-AuE is further used for establishing an immunosensor interface based upon immobilization of the CagA antigen on ZnO-T electrodeposited over the surface of SP-AuE. The sensing interface demonstrated good linearity (0.2 ng/mL to 50 ng/mL) and limit of detection (0.2 ng/mL). The ion beam irradiated ZnO-T based immunosensor showed significantly high conductivity and enhanced the analytical properties of the working electrode in terms of the sensitivity, detection limit, and response time. A study on the comparison of irradiated and pristine electrode is performed for amperometric sensing of H. pylori. In addition, the significance of work conducted on ion irradiated ZnO-T based interfaces provides a basis of further development of electrochemical immunosensors.
