- Implantable microsensor
- Long term monitoring
- In vivo long term measurement of glucose in animals or tissues
Measuring glucose in vivo over the long term is challenging and difficult. Previous measurement systems were limited to acute studies or a few days at best. WPI introduces a new kind of implantable glucose sensor based on a patented technology. This sensor provides a tool for researchers to directly detect glucose in chronic studies in vitro or in vivo. The sensor is fully compatible with WPI’s TBR systems.
The tip of the sensor has a coil that holds the enzyme-saturated cotton plug. The diameter of the coiled tip is about 600μm.
