1. A method for manufacturing an electrode for measuring a concentration of an analyte, the method comprising:

  • preparing a colloidal dispersion of a blend of a hydrophobic polymer and a hydrophilic polymer in water;

    dipping at least a portion of an elongated conductive body into the colloidal dispersion, wherein the elongated conductive body comprises at least one electroactive surface and a first domain comprising an enzyme configured to react with the analyte; and

    removing water from the dipped portion to leave behind, on the elongated conductive body, a second domain configured to control a flux of the analyte therethrough, whereby an electrode for measuring a concentration of the analyte is obtained.
