An electrochemical magneto immunosensor for the detection of anti-transglutaminase antibodies (ATG2) in celiac disease was developed. The immunological reaction is performed on magnetic beads (MBs) as a solid support in which the transglutaminase enzyme (TG2) is covalently immobilized (TG2-MB) and then ATG2 were revealed by an antibody labeled with peroxidase. The electrochemical response of the enzymatic reaction with o-phenilendiamine and H2O2 as substrates by square wave voltammetry was correlated with the ATG2. Graphite-epoxi composite cylindrical electrodes and screen printed electrodes were used as transducers in the immunosensor. A total number of 29 sera from clinically confirmed cases of celiac disease and 19 negative control sera were tested by the electrochemical magneto immunosensor. The data were submitted to the receiver-operating characteristic plot (ROC) analysis which indicated that 16.95 units was the most effective cut-off value (COV) to discriminate correctly between celiac and non-celiac patients. Using this point for prediction, sensitivity was found to be 100%, while specificity was 84%. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.

A magneto immunofluorescence assay for the detection of anti-transglutaminase antibodies (ATG2) in celiac disease was developed. The ATG2 were recognized by transglutaminase enzyme immobilized on the magnetic beads and then the immunological reaction was revealed by antibodies labeled with peroxidase. The fluorescent response of the enzymatic reaction with o-phenylenediamine and H2O2 as substrates was correlated with anti-transglutaminase titer, showing EC50 and LOD values of 1:11,600 and 1:74,500 of antibody titers, respectively. A total number of 29 sera samples from clinically confirmed cases of celiac disease and 19 negative control samples were tested by the novel magneto immunofluorescence assay. The data were submitted to the receiver-operating characteristic plot (ROC) analysis which indicated that 8.1U was the most effective cut-off value to discriminate correctly between celiac and non-celiac patients. The immunofluorescence assay exhibited a sensitivity of 96.6%, a specificity of 89.5% and an efficiency 93.8% compared with the commercial optical ELISA kit. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.
