The applications of electrochemical methods in immunoassays and nucleic acid analyses are discussed. Instead of a comprehensive literature review, this paper focuses on the techniques that have already been commercialized and used in clinical diagnoses. Learning from the success of these methods will help us to further understand the strengths and limitations of electroanalytical technology. A personal perspective of the research and development in these fields has been presented.

Key words: electrochemical methods, immunoassay, nucleic acid analysis, clinical diagnostics
