Electrochemical methods of analysis have seen wide application as in vivo biosensors. Several features of electroanalytical methods have enhanced their utility in these applications. Electrochemical techniques show sufficient sensitivity and selectivity that in many instances they can be used directly to measure chemical activity. In addition, the probes can be miniaturized so the measurements cause minimum trauma to the tissue.
