Abstract: The development of biosensors for detection and identification of DNA sequences by hybridization may reduce assay time and allow direct quantitation of the target. This article describes the use of impedance spectroscopy technique for digoxigeninthiol- labeled ssDNA probe immobilization, anti-digoxigenin binding and targeted DNA hybridization. The analysis of the impedance spectra in terms of equivalents circuits of the gold/electrolyte interface and gold/digoxigenin-thiol-labeled/electrolyte interface is discussed. The DNA hybridization shows a variation in the impedance spectra.
