A generic implantable puck that can be used with a number of biosensor configurations. This generic implantable potentiostat telemetry unit (the puck) can also be part of a system to detect glucose concentrations. An electrochemical system partially implantable into a body for detecting glucose concentrations therein is presented. The system comprises an electrochemical sensor, a transmitting puck including an electric circuit connected to the electrochemical sensor for transmitting a signal indicative of the glucose concentrations in the body. There is at least one receiver for receiving the signal from the transmitting puck and a computer system coupled tlo the at least one receiver for processing the signal for patient diagnosis and treatment.
