Electrochemical methods may represent a promising tool for the early identification of melanoma as they rely exclusively on the electrochemical detection of redox active species related to the presence of biomarkers. Thereby, they can overcome limitations such as optical interferences as seen frequently with conventional histochemistry-related methods.
