Fig. 1–IGS100 sensor Fig. 2–Tip of the sensor showing the coil holding the enzyme saturated cotton plug. The diameter of the coiled tip is about 600µm. World Precision Instruments IGS100 implantable glucose sensor for real-time monitoring is an amperometric microsensor that can be used in vivo. the implantable, sensing tip is slightly larger than a half-millimeter in diameter. the tip is comprised of a metal coil with an enzyme-soaked cotton core. A proprietary coating covers the entire tip. As the sensor is used, the enzyme is consumed. the tip design resists contamination from biological materials, which significantly improves the life of the sensor. depending on measurement conditions, IGS100 may be used in vivo for weeks or even months. When not in use, it has a six-month shelf life. Notes and Warnings
NOTE: the sensor must be polarized for at least 4 hours in 5mM glucose
solution prior to use.
After unpacking, verify that there is no visible damage to the sensor. Verify
that all items are included:
(1) IGS100 glucose sensor (1) Instruction Manual(1) Sensor Performance evaluation Unpacking
upon receipt of this sensor, make a thorough inspection of the contents and
check for possible damage. Missing cartons or obvious damage to cartons should be noted on the delivery receipt before signing. concealed damage should be reported at once to the carrier and an inspection requested. Please read the section entitled "claims and returns" on page 7 of this manual. Please contact WPI customer Service if any parts are missing at 941.371.1003 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
the IGS100 sensor is shipped in a sealed, rigid plastic, hinged box with foam padding to avoid damage to your sensor during shipment. KeeP the SeNSor StorAge boX and all the documentation in a safe place. the storage box allows you to store the sensor safely with the tip suspended. the test date and serial number of each sensor is printed on the bottom of its box. use of the sensor should begin within 30 days of receipt.
World Precision Instruments Returns: do not return any goods to WPI without obtaining prior approval
(rMA # required) and instructions from WPI's returns department. goods
returned (unauthorized) by collect freight may be refused. If a return
shipment is necessary, use the original container, if possible. If the original
container is not available, use a suitable substitute that is rigid and of
adequate size. for further details, please read the section entitled "claims
and returns" on page 7 of this manual.
Conditioning the Sensor
1. turn on the free radical analyzer.
2. Set the poise voltage on the free radical analyzer to +600mV.
3. Plug the IGS100 glucose sensor into the microsensor cable (WPI
#91580) and plug the other end into the free radical analzyer. 4. Immerse the sensor element into a 5mM glucose solution with 0.05M PbS buffer (ph=7.4). It takes about 3-4 hours to stabilize the first time.
preparing Solution for Calibration
Prepare a 2M glucose standard solution by dissolving 7.2g glucose into
20ml distilled water. let the solution stand overnight at room temperature
to allow equilibration of anomers. Store solution at 4ºc.
Calibrating the IGS100
1. condition the sensor as described above.
2. remove the sensor from the glucose solution. rinse the sensor with
distilled water. 3. Immerse the glucose sensor tip into 20ml of 0.05M PbS solution.
4. Place a magnetic stirring bar into the solution. turn on the stirrer so that the bar is stirring at a moderate rate.
NOTE: the rate of the stirrer should not be modified once it is set. 5. After waiting a few minutes for the current to stabilize, record its value. typically the current should be a few nA or less. ( It should not exceed 20nA.) NOTE: the calibration should be carried out at the temperature at which the measurement of glucose is to be made. this can be accomplished by placing the vial and stand in a water bath at the appropriate World Precision Instruments
temperature, and allowing the temperature of the solution in the bottle to equilibrate with water bath.
5. once the current has achieved a stable value, record this value or use zero function in the instrument to set the baseline to zero.
6. Add 20µl of the 2M stock glucose solution into the 20ml of 0.05M PbS buffer solution. the concentration of glucose in the solution is now 2mM. the current output will rapidly increase upon addition of glucose and reach a plateau in a couple minutes.
7. Add an additional 20µl aliquot of 2M stock glucose solution when the signal reaches a plateau. the concentration of glucose in the solution is increasing by 2mM with the addition of each aliquot. When the current output reaches a plateau, record the value displayed on the free radical analyzer.
8. repeat step 7 another three times. A typical calibration plot looks similar to the one shown in Fig. 3.
Fig. 3–Calibration plot showing five aliquots of 2M glucose injected into PBS solution 9. Plot the current readings against the total glucose concentration on a graph. the slope of this line indicates the sensitivity of the glucose sensor. once the sensitivity of the glucose sensor is known, the sensor is ready for experimental use.
World Precision Instruments Fig. 4–Calibration data plotted shows the linear rise in current with the increase of the solution molarity NOTE: Since the enzyme is consumed as the sensor is used, the sensor should be re-calibrated before each experiment.

Storing the Sensor
STANDBY: If the sensor is being used the next day, it should be stored with
the tip suspended in 5mM glucose solution at 4ºc.
LONG-TERM: for long-term storage of more than one week, rinse the sensor tip with distilled water and let it dry. Protect the tip and store the sensor dry at 4ºc. It is best to store the sensor in its original box with the tip suspended.
Maintaining the Sensor
After each use, rinse the sensor with distilled water.
Sterilizing the Sensor
the sensor can be sterilized chemically using an appropriate disinfectant
(for example, cidex, WPI#7364).
CAUTION: do not use alcohol on the sensor.
