In this study, an ultrasensitive and robust biodevice implemented on a screen-printed carbon electrode (SPCE) surface is introduced. The β-casomorphin-7 (BCM-7) peptide as an early warning sign of autism disorder is distinguished in this system. The SPCE surface was directly electrodeposited with a nanolayer of the nickel oxide nanoparticles (NiONP). In next step, an Apt sequence as a capture of the BCM-7 was strongly attached on this surface. The embedded sensing interface offered some admirable characterizes to detect the BCM-7. The obtained DPV signals were reversely proportional to the concentrations of the BCM-7 through a stable binding reaction in two working linear ranges from 0.5 × 10-1.5 μmol l-. Also, an unrivaled limit of detection (LOD) value of 166.6 aM was achieved that is so superior by other reported methods in the BCM-7 sensing. This hand-held biodevice was satisfactorily tested for the BCM-7 detection in human urine and blood sample with an average recovery rate of ∼101.87 %. More importantly, this strategy is free from labeling steps, complex sample processing and interference from common biomolecules in blood or urine. Due to the inherent advantages of the SPCE and the NiONP, utilizing this facile sensing interface may be an ideal choice in constructing of the ultrasensitive biodevice with low cost for distinguishing of the autism disorder.
