A surface plasmon resonance (SPR) biosensor for simultaneous detection of multiple organic pollutants exhibiting endocrine-disrupting activity, namely atrazine, benzo[ a]pyrene, 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) and 4-nonylphenol, is reported. The biosensor utilizes a multichannel SPR sensor based on wavelength modulation of SPR and wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) of sensing channels, antibodies as biorecognition element and a competitive immunoassay detection format. An analysis time of 45 min (including 30-min incubation of the sample with antibodies) and limits of detection as low as 0.05, 0.07, 0.16 and 0.26 ng mL−1 are demonstrated for benzo[ a]pyrene, atrazine, 2,4-D and 4-nonylphenol, respectively. The biosensor is also shown to be regenerable and suitable for repeated use.
