    Abstract

    For diagnostic purposes, and particularly point-of-care diagnostic purposes, there is a need for devices capable of detecting quorum sensing molecules such as AHL within a biological sample with high precision, and which furthermore are fast and simple to use. The present invention relates to an electrochemical device, comprising:5 - at least one reference electrode (RE), - at least one counter electrode (CE), - two or more working electrodes (WEs), wherein each working electrode differ from the other working electrode(s) with respect to at least one of the following characteristics: surface area, 10 size, material, and coating, - a sample receiving area for receiving a biological sample, wherein the electrodes and the sample receiving area is fluidly connected - means for transferring the sample to the electrodes for measurement, and - means for displaying a result of the measurement.15
