Development of novel glucose sensing fluids with potential application to microelectromechanical systems-based continuous glucose monitoring.


BACKGROUND We have previously presented a microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) viscometric sensor for continuous glucose monitoring. The sensing fluid used therein was based on protein concanavalin A, which is known to have significant drawbacks, such as immunotoxicity and instability. To address this issue, a stable, biocompatible polymeric sensing fluid… (More)
