1987 (English)In: World Biotech Report 1987: Europe v.1: Conference Proceedings (World Biotech Report 1987, Vol 1, Part 1), London: Online , 1987, 1, 125-137 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
This paper describes a new amperometric enzymc electrode for glucose analysis, which has improve<l performance characteristics compared to previous mediated systems. The scheme presented should be applicable toa wide range of enzyme electrodes and oxidoreductase-based assays. The eleccrode utilised the medlacor tetrathiafulvalene (TIF) ro facilitate electron transfer from glucose oxidase toa pyrolytic graphite eleccrode. The enzyme electrode demonstraced a linear response to glucose over a clinically relevant range (0-25 mM). le funct Loned both aerobically and anaerobically and was partlcularly insensltlve to changes in oxygen tension. Results concerning the electrode's response co glucose, its pH profile, the effect of oxygen and effect of temperature are presented.
