The Design of Peroxide Enzyme Membrane Polarographic Sensors for Clinical and Industrial Analysis

  • T. A. Grooms
  • L. C. ClarkJr.
  • B. J. Weiner


The rapid specific quantitative measurement of a number of substances which are important to clinical, food and fermentation chemists is made possible by immobilizing enzymes on membranes • which are used with Polarographie electrodes. We wish to illustrate the usefulness of such enzyme analytical probes in the intermittent and continuous measurement of glucose, sucrose, galactose, lactose, glycerol, and dihydroxyacetone.
