Abstract

This work represents a preliminary proof-of-concept design and verification of a 3D-printed glucose biosensor. The proof of concept presented is the first example of glucose dehydrogenase sensor fabricated by a 3D-printer while maintaining similar features to current lab-industry standards. The sensor was verified to detect physiological glucose concentrations between 0 and 400 mg/dL with a linear coefficient as high as.97. This study showed that it was possible to use 3D-printed technology to create a biosensor sensitive to glucose detection. As availability and functionality of 3D-printers expands, this technology has the potential to be an option for diabetes management. This preliminary study shows that the 3D-printed sensor platform holds promise for sensitive glucose detection.
