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

  • a transcutaneous analyte sensor;

    sensor electronics configured to operatively connect to the transcutaneous analyte sensor;

    an electrical contact comprising a first material, wherein the first material is associated with a first durometer hardness, wherein the electrical contact is configured to operably connect the transcutaneous analyte sensor to the sensor electronics;

    a sealing member comprising a second material, wherein the second material is associated with a second durometer hardness, wherein the sealing member at least partially surrounds the electrical contact and at least a portion of the transcutaneous analyte sensor when the transcutaneous analyte sensor is operably connected to the sensor electronics, wherein the sealing member substantially seals at least a portion of the electrical contact from moisture;

    a contact holder over which the sealing member and the transcutaneous analyte sensor are at least partially located; and

    wherein the first durometer hardness is higher than the second durometer hardness.
