The present invention relates to methods for detecting an analyte using enhanced electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) techniques to obtain data on a nucleic acid analyte. The method is advantageous since it can be carried out without the need for amplification of the nucleic acid analyte. This leads to simplification of the procedure and may result in enhanced speed over known assay methods, and therefore may improve time to result (TTR) and facilitate development of such assays in the near patient environment. The present methods are especially advantageous in analyses of wounds and in particular pathogens that are infecting wounds.
