  • Publication number: 20180263543
    Abstract: A sensor assembly for detecting at least one analyte in a body fluid includes an electrochemical sensor, a body mount that attaches to a body of a user and an inserter that transfers the sensor to the body mount. A first adhesive is attached to one or both of the body mount or the sensor, and the first adhesive attaches the sensor to the body mount. A second adhesive is attached to one or both of the sensor or the inserter and releasably attaches the sensor to the inserter. The assembly has an initial position in which the sensor is attached to the inserter via the second adhesive and a final position in which the sensor is attached to the body mount via the first adhesive. Transferring the sensor from the initial position to the final position releases the sensor from the inserter.
