Electrodes with conductive polymer underlayer
The disclosure provides method and materials for preparing biosensors (e.g., in vitro test strips and in vivo sensors) with improved mechanical properties. In some aspects, for example, the electrochemical sensors have improved durability and are better able to withstand mechanical and electrochemical stresses such as those encountered during manufacturing, transportation, storage, and use (e.g., in vivo positioning, in vivo operation, or in vitro operation).

Analytical test strip with capillary sample-receiving chambers separated by a physical barrier island
An analytical test strip for the determination of an analyte (such as glucose and/or hematocrit) in a bodily fluid sample (such as a whole blood sample) includes a first capillary sample-receiving chamber, a second capillary sample-receiving chamber, and a physical barrier island disposed between the first and second capillary sample-receiving chambers. Moreover, the physical island barrier is disposed such that bodily fluid sample flow between the first capillary sample-receiving chamber and the second capillary sample-receiving chamber is prevented during use of the analytical test strip..

Electrochemical-based analytical test strip with intersecting sample-receiving chambers
An electrochemical-based analytical test strip for the determination of an analyte (such as glucose) in a bodily fluid sample (for example, a whole blood sample) and/or a characteristic of the bodily fluid sample (for example, hematocrit) includes a first sample-receiving chamber with first and second sample-application openings, and first and second electrodes. The first and second electrodes are disposed in the first sample-receiving chamber between the first and second sample-application openings.

Analytical test strip with capillary sample-receiving chambers separated by stop junctions
An analytical test strip for the determination of an analyte (such as glucose) in a bodily fluid sample (e.g., a whole blood sample) includes a first and second capillary sample-receiving chambers and first and second stop junctions that are disposed between the first and second capillary sample-receiving chambers. The first stop junction defines a discontinuity boundary of the first capillary sample-receiving chamber and the second stop junction defines a discontinuity boundary of the second capillary sample-receiving chamber.
