An apparatus for implantation of in vivo sensors includes a housing, a dual-lumen tube extending therefrom, and an in vivo sensor received within one of the lumen of the tube. A needle is received within the other lumens of the tube, and is used to insert the tube through the skin. After implantation, the needle is removed, and the flexible tube and sensor remaining beneath the skin provides the user with reduced irritation and greater comfort. The associated method for subcutaneous implantation of a sensor for use in vivo is also disclosed.
