We have developed a novel non-invasive glucose biosensor technology which features photoluminescence and random lasing properties of a glass photonic chip which interacts with the glucose component present in blood and interstitial fluid through skin. The pilot clinical studies of Glucose monitor with Type 1 diabetes subjects has shown excellent correlation with blood glucose concentration measurements. A novel fabrication based on ultrafast laser plasma implantation in glass allowed us to implement the new sensor methodology. Self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) levels is currently carried out by invasive finger stick method and our technology offers a viable non-invasive and continuous monitoring alternative. The product is currently under commercial development with Glucosense Diagnostics Ltd. This talk will provide an account of different approaches for non-invasive glucose sensing, past failures and why we are different.
