What are Screen-printed electrodes and which electrode should I choose?

Screen-printed electrodes make electrochemical detection very interesting for analysis in everyday life, especially point-of-care measurements. The measuring devices as well as electrodes can be miniaturized, making them portable. The results are quantitative and, when produced in large quantities, electronics get very cheap. This video will explain the differences between regular electrodes and screen-printed electrodes, the materials they are made of and the advantages and disadvantages of gold, platinum and carbon electrodes.
