Carbon Nanotube Sensor Detects Glucose in Saliva
from MIT Technology Review
Many people with diabetes undergo a daily regimen of tests that measure the amount of glucose in the blood stream, usually taken from finger prick samples. Needless to say, this is a time-consuming, expensive and painful process. So a cheap way of measuring blood glucose that does not require finger pricking would clearly be advantageous. Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia say they have developed such a device.
