1. An electrode for use in the electrochemical detection of a target species, the electrode comprising:
a planar surface having probe molecules disposed thereon, in which the probe molecules are capable of electrochemically detecting a target species comprising C reactive protein by binding selectively to the target species, wherein the electrode, prior to binding of the probe molecules with the target species, has an electron transfer resistance per area of the electrode of from 10 megaohms cm−2 to 95 megaohms cm−2.
