Modern blood glucose meters are equipped with small needles to convert microprotol. Scientists from the University of Leeds and employees NetScientific has introduced a new device capable of measuring blood sugar using a laser sensor. Thanks to him everyday procedure for patients with diabetes in the future will become completely safe and non-invasive.
The method is based on measurement of fluorescence radiation of ions, depending on the level of glucose in the blood. Analysis takes time no more than the traditional measurement of sugar – about 30 seconds.
The system is simple and easy to use. Information about the sugar stays on your computer, which is very convenient for keeping track of the dynamics. Now scientists are planning the production of the first samples for use in clinics. In the future there will be devices for measuring blood glucose in real time.
