Preliminary investigations on the detection of nucleic acid hybridisation by direct electrochemical techniques are described. Initial experiments were performed with calf thymus DNA, while as a model system, plasmid DNA (pEMBL) which can be prepared in single stranded forms from each of two original double stranded plasmids (+19 and -19) was used. Electrochemical analyses have been performed using mercury pool, glassy carbon and screen printed carbon working electrodes.
