The authors describe a calorimetric glucose sensor that does not require ambient temperature control and is potentially suitable for implantation in the body. It is possible to sense the small temperature rise associated with the enzymatic reactions of glucose and hydrogen peroxide in the presence of glucose oxidase and catalase using a thin-film thermopile without control of ambient temperature. In vitro test results in blood indicate that the method may have potential for the development of a miniature probe suitable for implantation in the body.
