  • Publication number: 20210015407
    Abstract: Various examples are directed to a glucose sensor comprising a working electrode to support an oxidation reaction and a reference electrode to support a redox reaction. The reference electrode may comprise silver and silver chloride. The Glucose sensor may also comprise an anti-mineralization agent positioned at the reference electrode to reduce formation of calcium carbonate at the reference electrode.
