This chapter describes the general requirements for using fluorescence for in vivo glucose monitoring. A survey of reported work in the areas of glucose receptors, assays for glucose using these receptors, and various fluorescence phenomena is discussed. In addition, the materials and methods for interfacing measurement instrumentation with receptors for construction of biosensors are described.
