Engineering Minute – Bloodless Glucose Monitor

Bloodless Glucose Monitor

Scientists at the University of Bath have developed an adhesive bloodless glucose monitor patch that measure glucose levels without ever piercing the skin. Instead of using blood from a traditional finger-prick, the patch draws glucose from fluid between hair follicle cells. The glucose is collected in tiny reservoirs an measured, with the ability to read results every 10 to 15 minutes. Read more about this revolutionary patch at University of Bath.
