1. A method of calibrating an analyte sensor in vivo, comprising the steps of:

  • (a) providing a first predetermined stimulus to the sensor when the sensor is applied to a subject to produce a first sensor signal;

    (b) measuring the first sensor signal; and

    (c) determining a calibration function based on the first measured sensor signal resulting from the predetermined stimulus, whereby the calibration function when applied to further signals received from the sensor can be used to provide a calibrated output.
