Focusing on the interplay between interface chemistry, electrochemistry, and integrated electronics, we show a novel low-cost and flexible biosensing platform for continuous glucose monitoring. The amperometric biosensing system features a planar three-electrode structure on a plastic substrate, and a wireless NFC-powered electronic system performing sensor analog front-end (AFE), A/D conversion, digital control, and display tasks. The working electrode is made of electropolymerized poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT) film onto an Au/PET electrode followed by immobilization of cross-linked glucose oxidase by glutaraldehyde. The advantages offered by such a device, including low-cost materials and instrumentation as well as the good sensitivity of 9.24 μA/(mM · cm2) are promising tools for point-of-care monitoring. It is demonstrated that the devices are good candidates for the development of advanced sensing approaches based on the investigation of the noise produced during operation (Fluctuation Enhanced Sensing).
