Optical system for implantable analyte sensors Conference Paper uri icon


  • An optical system for in vivo use with implanted microsphere sensors has been developed, utilizing a fiber probe to measure fluorescence emitted from sensors embedded in skin tissue. The optical system possesses high signal-to-noise and is faster than commercial instruments. The device will be used in evaluation of hydrogel-encapsulated fluorescent sensors for glucose determination.
