Amperometric glucose sensors have been assembled by immobilizing glucose oxidase on Nucleopore polycarbonate membranes via glutaraldehyde crosslinking. To eliminate electrochemical interferences, novel blocking membranes were used that are permeable to hydrogen peroxide, making them interference free, highly stable, reproducible, and with extended linearity for glucose up to 50 mM.
