Reusable Enzyme-Free Glucose Sensor Offers Greater Stability, Longer Shelf-Life and Easier Fabrication

An assistant professor of analytical chemistry and inventor from the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh has developed a non-enzymatic glucose sensing device using composite materials made of conductive polymers and metal nanoparticle catalysts. For routine blood glucose analysis, this sensor has the potential to offer several benefits over its enzymatic counterparts, including increased stability, reusability, easier fabrication and lower cost. The device also has the potential to overcome limitations of less ideal pH and temperature conditions, making it suitable for monitoring other body fluids as well as environmental and food production samples.
