The invention relates to a method for producing a homogenous solution of a fluoropolymer, selected from fluoropolymers and fluoro-copolymers and mixtures of various fluoro-homopolymers and/or fluoro-copolymers in a high boiling solvent, whereby (a) the fluoropolymer to be dissolved is dissolved in a mixture of at least two solvents, the first comprising a boiling point of less than 150 C., and/or a vapor pressure of over 5 hPa (at 20 C.), and the second being a high boiling solvent comprising a boiling point at least 50 K higher than the first solvent and/or the boiling point thereof being selected so that the solvent mixture comprises a separation factor of 1, and subsequently (b) the first solvent is substantially or completely removed from the mixture. The invention further relates to a method for producing suspensions of inorganic particles of a piezoelectrically and pyroelectrically active or activatable oxide in such fluoropolymer solutions and to the product of said method. The colorless fluoropolymer solutions and opaque white suspensions are suitable for producing laminar piezoelectric and pyroelectric coatings, in particular using doctor blade or screen printing methods.

The invention relates to a device for the transcutaneous, in vivo measurement of the concentration of at least one analyte in a living organism, comprising a carrier which can be introduced into the organism, and a luminescence indicator which is immobilized on the carrier and which reacts to a change in the concentration of the analyte to be measured with a change in at least one optical property, wherein the luminescence indicator is transcutaneously connected to a source for providing the excitation radiation and a detector for detecting the measuring radiation. According to the invention, the luminescence indicator is immobilized on the outer circumference of a catheter, which is used to dispense a fluid medium, for example a medicament, into the organism or to suck up a body fluid.
