There is a need for the development of a fast, simple and reusable assay method to perform biotin determination at very low concentrations. Biotin determination has achieved with a prepared potentiometric biotin sensor that has a very wide concentration range (10−15 M–10−7 M) and a lower detection limit (0.3 10−15 M) with a very good regression coefficient (0.9925). A quick response (7 min), good accuracy (recovery 100.4–103.7%), reproducible, reusable (10 times), and long-term stability (3 months) have been obtained using the prepared potentiometric sensor. The obtained results have proved that the prepared potentiometric sensor can be used for biotin determination in real samples.
