Glucose Sensor

Application ID: 16269

Electrochemical glucose sensors use amperometric methods to measure the concentration of glucose in a sample. This example models the diffusion of glucose and ferri/ferrocyanide redox mediators in a unit cell of electrolyte above an interdigitated electrode. The sensor gives a linear response over a suitable range of concentrations. The Electroanalysis interface is used to couple the chemical species transport to the electrolysis at the working and counter electrodes, and the glucose is oxidized by the glucose oxidase enzyme in solution according to Michaelis-Menten kinetics.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
