FULL STORY

A high-performance flexible glucose biosensor, which is sensitive to specifically detect trace amount of glucose level in human saliva, has been developed by researchers.

The biosensor demonstrates a good linear response in a wide glucose level range (approximately 10-5 mmol/L to 10 mmol/L , i.e. from 5 g to 140 Kg glucose in a standard swimming pool), and is a portable non-invasive glucose level meter for home use.
