1. A system for measuring an analyte concentration in a host, the system comprising:

  • a sensor system comprising;

    a first package comprising;

    a transcutaneous analyte sensor configured to measure a signal indicative of analyte concentration in the host; and

    electrical contacts operably connected to the transcutaneous analyte sensor, wherein the electrical contacts are configured to form an operable connection to sensor electronics prior to sensor use;

    wherein the transcutaneous analyte sensor is associated with an alphanumeric code, andwherein the first package is labeled with the alphanumeric code; and

    a second package comprising;

    sensor electronics configured to be operably connected to the transcutaneous analyte sensor through the electrical contacts when the sensor electronics are operably connected to the transcutaneous analyte sensor by the host prior to sensor use, wherein the sensor electronics also comprise an RF module for wireless communications, wherein the sensor electronics are associated with the alphanumeric code, andwherein the second package is labeled with the alphanumeric code;

    wherein the sensor electronics are configured to communicate with a receiver that comprises;

    a processor configured to receive sensor information from the sensor electronics and to process the sensor information received from the sensor electronics, anda display configured to display an estimated analyte concentration value associated with the sensor information; and

    wherein the sensor electronics are configured to transmit information associated with the alphanumeric code to the receiver.
