No more stinging: painless biosensor measures diabetic sugar

Fonte GNN

A painless diabetes test, unprecedented in the world, could soon be in the hands of consumers, on the shelves of pharmacies. It is a biosensor that measures sugar in diabetics by saliva.

Funded by the Australian Government's Modern Manufacturing Initiative for $6.3 million, the biosensor will benefit more than 460 million people living with diabetes worldwide.

University of Newcastle physicist and research leader Professor Paul Dastoor said the first devices should roll off the production line in 2023.

For patients suffering diabetes, who have until now needed a finger prick to monitor their blood glucose levels, this news could not have come at a more appropriate time.

How it works

The saliva test makes the prick test for type 1 and type 2 diabetes obsolete, representing the first major innovation since blood glucose testing was developed in the 1960s.

Professor Dastoor attributes this, in part, to the inspiration of his wife, who as a primary school teacher helped children in her care to monitor their blood glucose levels.

Professor Dastoor said the sensor could be developed for application in 130 indications, including tumor markers, hormones and allergens.

other diseases

“The biosensor is a 'platform technology', which means it will be widely applicable to detect a variety of substances that identify a range of diseases. We are already looking for substances that identify cancer, hormones and allergies,” he explained.

The sensor can also help with urgently needed new diagnostic tests to help eradicate COVID-19.

Now the team is partnering with Harvard University's Wyss Institute for Biology-Inspired Engineering to help develop the sensor platform as a non-invasive COVID test.)
