Amperometric sensor
A sensor that measures the concentration of analyte by the current generated by an electrochemical reaction involving the analyte. The current in the measuring circuit thus depends on the concentration of the analyte.
Analyte
The chemical compound that is detected by a sensor. The primary analyte is the chemical of interest that may be detected directly or through conversion to/by a secondary analyte in a conversion sensor.
