Non-Invasive Diabetes Diagnosis and Monitoring

Non invasive testing

Treating diabetes needs constant monitoring and maintenance which poses a major burden for the afflicted, their communities and their families. Moreover, increasing rates of diabetes is taxing on national economies and healthcare systems.

Present diagnostic standards and therapies for diabetes are burdensome and invasive, but latest advances in medical sensing technology has put non-invasive diabetes testing and blood glucose monitoring in reach of Medical Researchers. Avantes is proud to be on the forefront of the exciting advances evolving in the area of biomedical sensing.

Current Standards for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Diabetes

The diagnosis and ongoing management of diabetes presently needs direct measurement of blood glucose or glycated hemoglobin levels. There are a few methods used by medical professionals, including the random or fasting blood sugar tests and glucose tolerance tests. These methods are mainly referred to as amperometric detection tests because the reaction of blood sugar to a reagent produces a small electrical charge in proportion to the levels of sugar in the sample. This method can be extremely accurate when carried out in a laboratory setting and is also well understood and standardized.

Is there any way to use glucose test strips without a diabetic meter?

I found a science fair project online that's testing the glucose levels in fruits. It told me that I needed glucose test strips, and glucose tablets, fruit, and that's all. I bought the strips, and when I tried them, nothing happened. There was also

Why do blood glucose test strips require coding?

Many blood glucose testing strips require that a code be entered into the meter that is indicated on the test strip container. I have no idea why this is required. Plus, what makes such a tiny piece of plastic worth $1 a strip?!


The strips work based on an enzymatic reaction between the chemicals on the strip and the glucose content of the sample. For any particular batch of the enzyme coating they put on a strip, the reaction to a specific amount of glucose can be slightly different


It identifies the strip to the machine and is used to help insure you get a correct reading. Plus what makes it cost $1 a strip is all the chemicals that are used in the testing, the research before they were made, the packaging and the marketing of them.
