Existing personal glucose levels are still controlled invasively by blood sampling. The option of constant 24 hour monitoring of blood glucose levels would significantly impact the wellbeing of diabetic patients and reduce the ever growing financial cost of the disease. 

Our Innovation

  • A multisensory platform technology could become a foundation for developing wearable blood glucose meter for diabetic patients.
  • The multi-sensing platform evaluates an irradiating signal high frequency range and thus decodes the change in the blood glucose level
  • The platform is based on a micro-strip sensor reading the reflection (or transmission) and modifying the dielectric response of RBCs
  • The device is envisioned to be integrated with a receiving unit (smart phone) for further data analysis and ongoing diabetes monitoring


  • Glucose concentrations in blood plasma significantly change the nature of the cytoplasm in Red Blood Cells (RBC) which is particularly useful for remotely sensing measuring blood glucose level.
