Title: Easy to handle electrochemical sensor in the shape of a strip

Abstract: Electrochemical sensor, in the shape of a strip of small dimensions including a thin plastic substrate (1) carrying, over all or part of its length, at least two current collectors (4, 5) separated by an electrically insulating space (3), said substrate (1) and said collectors (4, 5) being covered with a plastic coating (2), in which two windows (8, 9) are cut allowing collector portions (4, 5) to appear to form a connection window (8) at one end and a measuring window (9) close to the other end, leaving a distal portion (10) of the strip free beyond the measuring window, wherein said distal portion (10) includes, on the side of the strip where the windows (8, 9) are arranged, at least one button (12) obtained by hot or cold deformation (11) of the external face of the substrate (1), said button allowing said sensor to be slid to the edge of a flat surface to be grasped.
