BACKGROUND Glucose dehydrogenases have been highly promoted to high-accuracy blood glucose (BG) monitors. The flavin adenine dinucleotide glucose dehydrogenase (FAD-GDH) and mutant variant of quinoprotein glucose dehydrogenase (Mut. Q-GDH) are widely used in high-performance BG monitors for multi-patient use. Therefore we conducted accuracy evaluation of(More)
BACKGROUND Self-monitoring blood glucose (SMBG) systems play a critical role in management of diabetes. SMBG systems should at least meet the minimal requirement of the World Health Organization's ISO 15197:2003. For tight glycemic control, a tighter accuracy requirement is needed. METHODS Seven SMBG systems were evaluated for accuracy and precision:(More)
A simple, rapid and reliable method based on high-performance liquid chromatography with electrochemical detection was developed to routinely differentiate among meat products from fifteen food animal species. Samples from cattle, pigs, goats, deer, horses, chickens, ducks, ostriches, salmon, cod, shrimp, crabs, scallops, bullfrogs and alligators each(More)
We demonstrate here the application of barrel plating gold electrodes for fabricating a new type of disposable amperometric glucose biosensor. It is prepared by inserting two barrel plating gold electrodes onto an injection molding plastic base followed by immobilizing with a bioreagent layer and membrane on the electrode surface. The primary function of(More)
Disposable one shot usage blood glucose strips are routinely used in the diagnosis and management of diabetes mellitus and their performance can vary greatly. In this paper we critically evaluated the long-term stability of glucose strips made of barrel plating gold electrodes. Compared to other glucose biosensing platforms of vapor deposited palladium and(More)
A screen-printed silver strip with three-electrode configuration of Ag-working, Ag-counter and Ag/Ag(x)O reference electrodes was developed for simultaneous determination of chloride, bromide and iodide in aqueous solutions. It was fabricated simply by screen-printing silver ink onto a polypropylene (PP) base. The in-situ prepared Ag/Ag(x)O reference(More)
We report here an efficient photocatalytic amperometric sensor for the determination of dissolved oxygen (DO) in phosphate buffer solution using a disposable copper-plated screen-printed carbon electrode (CuSPE). The photoelectrochemical activity toward DO of the CuSPE was related to the formation of a p-type semiconductor Cu(I)2O. The solution pH and(More)
A disposable copper nanoparticle-plated screen-printed carbon electrode (designated as Cun-SPE(100-nm)) provides a new material for the determination of native amino acids. All 20 underivatized amino acids can be sensitively determined at 0.0 V vs. Ag/AgCl in pH 8 phosphate buffer solution. The precisely controlled copper nanoparticles can boost up the(More)
Peak overlap in voltammetry poses challenges for the quantitative analysis of electroactive species. Dopamine and uric acid are typically challenging to determine voltammetrically because of their very similar oxidation peak potentials. We report preliminary results of the use of a screen-printed carbon electrode for the determination of dopamine and uric(More)
BACKGROUND The key issue in preventing chronic diabetic complications is to maintain near-normoglycemia. Analytical evaluation of Bionime self-monitoring blood glucose (SMBG) Rightest GM110 was carried out in this study. METHODS The evaluation was executed according to the Standards for Reporting Diagnostic Accuracy (STARD) and the Clinical and Laboratory(More)
