  • Publication number: 20060224108
    Abstract: An implantable sensor for use in measuring a concentration of an analyte such as glucose in a bodily fluid, including a body with a sensing region adapted for transport of analytes between the sensor and the bodily fluid, wherein the sensing region is located on a curved portion of the body such that when a foreign body capsule forms around the sensor, a contractile force is exerted by the foreign body capsule toward the sensing region. The body is partially or entirely curved, partially or entirely covered with an anchoring material for supporting tissue ingrowth, and designed for subcutaneous tissue implantation. The geometric design, including curvature, shape, and other factors minimize chronic inflammatory response at the sensing region and contribute to improved performance of the sensor in vivo.

  • Publication number: 20060015020
    Abstract: Abstract of the Disclosure Systems and methods for manufacture of an analyte-measuring device, including adhering a membrane system that allows the passage of the analyte therethrough to a sensing mechanism. The implantable analyte-measuring device includes a body formed from a material that is substantially similar to the membrane system so as to enable sufficiently strong adhesion therebetween, which enables a sufficiently strong adhesive joint capable of withstanding in vivo cellular forces. In some embodiments, the device body includes an insert to which the membrane system is adhered, wherein the insert is formed from a material substantially similar to the membrane system to enable strong adhesion therebetween. The analyte-measuring device is designed with optimized device sizing and maximum membrane adhesion and longevity to enable controlled transport of analytes through the membrane system in vivo with improved device performance.

  • Publication number: 20050242479
    Abstract: Abstract of the Disclosure An implantable analyte sensor including a sensing region for measuring the analyte and a non-sensing region for immobilizing the sensor body in the host. The sensor is implanted in a precisely dimensioned pocket to stabilize the analyte sensor in vivo and enable measurement of the concentration of the analyte in the host before and after formation of a foreign body capsule around the sensor. The sensor further provides a transmitter for RF transmission through the sensor body, electronic circuitry, and a power source optimized for long-term use in the miniaturized sensor body.
