1. A system for analyte detection in and fluid infusion into a host, comprising:

  • an analyte sensor configured and arranged to generate a signal associated with an analyte;

    a vascular access device configured for fluid communication with a circulatory system of the host, wherein the analyte sensor is associated with the vascular access device such that fluid flow through the vascular access device passes the analyte sensor; and

    system electronics operably connected to the analyte sensor and configured to process the signal, wherein the system electronics comprise;

    a processor module configured to control a flow profile of a flow control device, wherein the flow profile is configured to intermittently control flow of a fluid through the vascular access device into the circulatory system of the host and to intermittently control a flow of a sample from the circulatory system of the host into the vascular access device when the vascular access device is in fluid communication with the circulatory system of the host and operably connected to the flow control device; and

    an output module configured and arranged to operably connect with the flow control device so as to enable the processor module to control the flow profile of the flow control device.
