Detection of epinephrine and norepinephrine is a task that has been investigated thoroughly over past couple decades. The importance of epinephrine and norepinephrine is very significant for various applications. Unlike the conventional high performance and high throughput method that are used by the industry today, simple electrochemical detection to achieve such task. For the electrode, unmodified screen-printed carbon electrode was utilized. Screen-printing technique is fairly new technology among electrode fabrication technology. This technology allows mass production of electrodes at very low cost. By looking at different electrochemical fingerprints generated by cyclic square wave voltammetry, detection of epinephrine and norepinephrine was investigated.
