Abstract: The biosensor field has grown enormously since the first demonstration of the biosensor concept by Leland C. Clark Jr. in 1962. Today's biosensor market is dominated by glucose biosensors, mass-produced enzyme-electrodes for the rapid self-diagnosis of blood glucose levels by diabetes sufferers. Here we take a historical look at the inception, growth, and development of the enzyme biosensor field from a strong commercial viewpoint. The current status of the technology is evaluated and future trends in this dynamic and fast-moving field are also anticipated.
