Paper Abstract

A novel fiber-optic sensor sensitive to glucose has been designed based on electrostatic self-assembly method. The polycation of the structure is a mixture of poly(allylamine hydrochloride) (PAH) and Prussian Blue, whereas the polyanion is well-known enzyme gluocose oxidase (GOx). The range of glucose concentration that can be measured is submilimolar and is located between 0.1 and 2 mM. Measures are based on a new detection scheme based on the slope of the change of signal produced by injection of glucose, yielding to a linear response. The sensor responses in a PH range between 4 and 7.4, which includes the physiological PH of blood. Some rules for esitmation of the refractive index of the material deposited and the thickness of bilayers are also given.
